  • The flight appeared to abort their first attempt at landing

Daily Mail UK, 23 December 2015


A Southwest airlines flight circled above Oakland for more than three hours before landing after the captain discovered mechanical problems with the landing gear.


Flight 2457, with 139 passengers on board, headed for Chicago Medway Airport at 6:13am (PT) on Wednesday morning.

A short way into the four-hour flight, officials decided to turn back towards Ca after discovering the issue to burn off fuel for an emergency landing.

The flight aborted one attempt to land as ground crews tried to figure out what was wrong with the plane.

At 10:15am (PT) the plane touched back down without any issues.
It is likely to cause delays on what is one of the busiest travel days of the year.
They have to dump fuel so the aircraft is the right weight for landing.

Southwest said in a statement:

'After takeoff, the Captain in Command made the decision to return to Oakland to check a maintenance item on the aircraft.
Oakland airport officials said they placed their facility on a 'yellowalert' preparing for the plane's return.
