A US Airways flight from Philadelphia made an emergency landing Monday at Tampa International Airport after the crew reported difficulty lowering and locking the nose gear.

Flight 1291, an MD-80 with 120 passengers and crew aboard, landed without incident just before 4 p.m. as fire trucks stood by in case the nose gear didn't hold. No one was injured, and the plane taxied to its gate under its own power.
