News coming in of OH-LTN flying from Beijing to Helsinki having landing gear issues.

Sources state that the rescue department is on alert but there is no great risk and the plane is due to land at 13:13 CET.

Hopefully the plane makes it home safe!

I can't speak Finnish, so what kind of problems are they having? Hydraulic?

Finnair told that there might be a problem with the nose gear, but that the plane should land safely.

The indicator light for the nosewheel lit up during the flight, indicating a possible fault with the nose wheel. If the wheel is broken, the machine may be unable to get to the gate and needs to be towed.

A very rough translation, based on my limited Finnish.
