A Northwest Airlines jet landed safely at Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Mich. Satruday after flaps on the plane's wings were unresponsive, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

The plane, which carried 47 people, landed in Grand Rapids, where it was scheduled to land, early Saturday morning, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The flaps on the plane apparently would not deploy, according to airport spokesman Bruce Schedlbauer.

This incident comes after another incident involving a United Airlines jet Friday.

That plane, carrying 39 passengers, landed safely Friday afternooon in Kent County's Cascade Township after hydraulic problems forced the plane to land before its scheduled destination.
