Tasmania plane emergency

An air drama involving a light plane at Wynyard airport in Tasmania's north-west has ended with the aircraft landing safely. 

The plane with only a male pilot on board was flying from Melbourne when he reported a mechanical problem with the twin-engine Piper Chieftain aircraft about 8:30pm [AEST].

The pilot circled the airport for about an hour while emergency crews prepared for his landing.

The pilot was not injured and the aircraft is now being checked.
