A Procter & Gamble Co. corporate jet with the CEO aboard has landed safely at a Pennsylvania airport after a warning sensor indicated a possible problem with landing gear.

Company spokeswoman Robyn Schroeder says all 13 people aboard are fine. They included a three-person crew and 10 passengers led by Bob McDonald, chairman and chief executive of the Cincinnati-based consumer products maker.

P&G says the Gulfstream IV's crew members got the warning Friday morning while making their landing approach. They then made several passes over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport to allow controllers on the ground to confirm that the landing gear had deployed correctly.

The group went on to visit a P&G plant in the area.

Schroeder says a replacement aircraft has been sent to return them to Cincinnati.
