Here's the audio

The aircraft climbed to 4000 feet and entered a hold while working the checklists. The crew subsequently requested a low approach to runway 04R to have their nose landing gear inspected from the ground. Following the low approach tower reported the nose gear looked "fine". The aircraft climbed again to 4000 feet and positioned for a full stop landing on runway 04L. On final approach the passengers were instructed to take their brace positions, the aircraft touched down on the center line of runway 04L and rolled out safely.
