No passengers or crew were injured when a landing gear wheel fell off an Air Canada Jazz plane following its landing at Toronto's Pearson airport.

Jazz spokeswoman Manon Stuart says the right wheel on the nose gear loosened while the small propeller plane was taxiing to the terminal to finish its flight from North Bay, Ont.

Stuart says pilots kept complete control of the plane during the incident, which saw emergency vehicles race out to the plane as a precautionary measure.

She says there were 72 passengers on the plane.

Stuart says the airline is launching an investigation to figure out what made the wheel come loose.
