The captain reported soon after takeoff that there were issues with the plane and returned to Oakland. The passengers were informed and most of them were filling fear. By that time passengers were watching the news online. With the fuel tanks empty, the plane returned to Oakland and first made a pass by the control tower so air traffic controllers could get a look at the plane’s landing gear. On the emergency landing no one was injured. It was a smooth landing because a front tire on the landing gear had blown out. The aircraft will be taken out of service and inspected. Most of the passengers were booked onto other flights after they returned to Oakland and continued their trip to Chicago, but others decided to leave the flying for another day.
