LABUAN: A Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) transport aircraft was forced to make an emergency belly landing at the airport here on Saturday.

A statement from the RMAF said the pilots and crew of the C130 Hercules transport aircraft were not hurt in the 5.30pm incident.

It said that the aircraft experienced landing gear problems and was forced to land without its gear.

RMAF said the aircraft circled for six hours to burn fuel before making the emergency landing safely at 5.15pm.

The Labuan airport has, however, been closed to air traffic until further notice.

The statement did not disclose the number of people on board or the origin of the flight.
