No Injuries In Airliner Emergency Landing

An airliner made an emergency landing at Oakland International Airport last night after indications the landing gear had not retracted.

Airport officials say Delta SkyWest flight 3840 left Oakland around 4:35 p.m. heading for Salt Lake City. Shortly after take-off, pilots decided the wheels had not retracted and decided to return.

They flew around for about 40 minutes to burn off fuel – then landed without incident. None of the 50 people on board were hurt. The plane blocked the main runway for 48 minutes before being towed away.
