FNN: Southwest Plane Attempts to Land at Oakland Airport after Mechanical Issues Reported

Southwest Flight 2547 departed Oakland for Chicago Midway with 139 passengers onboard on Wednesday December 23, 2015. After takeoff, the Captain in Command made the decision to return to Oakland to check a maintenance item on the aircraft. The plane circled above the Central Valley and above the Oakland International Airport for hours before landing safely. The mechanical problem reportedly had to do with the landing gear.
