GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) — Two planes made by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier have had to make emergency landings in less than a week because of a landing gear problem.

A Skywest Airlines plane landed at General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee on Tuesday after the cockpit crew reported that only two of the three sets of landing gear would lower.

Last Saturday, an Atlantic Southeast Airlines commuter flight made an emergency landing at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport because of a problem with its landing gear.

In addition to the latest two incidents, the FAA reports at least three other landing gear problems with Bombardier jets since 2008.

Bombardier did not comment on the Milwaukee incident but has said its jets are safe.
