Fire crews were called to Tauranga Airport this afternoon.

The shift manager at the Fire Communications Centre in Auckland said crews had been called after a strange noise had been heard coming from the cockpit of a light aircraft.

The call came in about 5.10pm

He said fire crews were called to be on stand-by as a safety precaution.

He said the light aircraft had landed safely and fire fighters were stood down before they reached the airport.
