BOISE -- An Idaho Air National Guard fighter jet made a successful landing at Gowen Field Monday after its landing gear reportedly became stuck while flying.

Colonel Tim Marsano said the single-seat A-10 aircraft was on a routine training mission when the in-flight emergency happened.

Ada County dispatchers say the pilot tried for approximately 45 minutes to shake the gear loose before successfully landing at approximately 3:20 p.m.

The A-10 is a close air support fighter that provides protection for ground forces.
