A flight from Aberdeen to Shetland was forced to return to the Aberdeen Airport runway mid-flight after a warning of potential landing gear issues.
The Eastern Airways flight landed safely back in Aberdeen just before 10.30am and engineers subsequently inspected the aircraft.
The Sumburgh-bound Saab 2000 had 19 passengers and three crew members on board.
An Eastern Airways spokesperson said: “Charter flight EZE1037 from Aberdeen to Sumburgh made a precautionary return to Aberdeen following a cockpit warning indication relating to the nose landing gear.
“The Saab 2000 aircraft, with 19 passengers and three crew on board, landed safely at Aberdeen at 10.26am and then taxied to its parking stand where passengers disembarked from the aircraft as normal via the aircraft steps.
“Engineers will be inspecting the aircraft.
“We apologise to passengers for the inconvenience, but the safety of our passengers and crew is our number one priority.”
