A plane carrying some members of the Detroit Pistons landed safely in Houston after experiencing some issues Monday afternoon.

The Houston-bound private chartered flight for the team started having hydraulic issues on the left side of the aircraft so an alarm sounded, according to the Houston Fire Department. However, the plane landed about 30 minutes later at 5:30pm without incident.

None of the 44 people aboard the plane was injured and authorities determined everything with the place was OK.

No other details were available.
