(CNN) -- A light aircraft with landing gear problems landed intact Monday afternoon at St. Louis-Lambert International Airport.

CNN affiliate KTVI said eight people were aboard the Learjet.

Officials earlier said that they expected the plane to touch down at St. Louis Downtown Airport, which is across the Mississippi River from St. Louis in Cahokia, Illinois.

The plane landed "without incident" at 1:32 p.m. CT (2:32 p.m. ET), the Federal Aviation Administration said. It had departed Wooster, Ohio, en route to St. Louis Downtown Airport earlier in the day.
