Flight returns to Cherry Capital

TRAVERSE CITY — A Delta Airlines flight returned to Cherry Capital Airport minutes after takeoff because of a problem with the plane's landing gear.

Airport Director Kevin Klein said the two-engine jet plane departed Cherry Capital Airport at 8 a.m. destined for Detroit with 49 passengers and three crew members on board. Pilots turned the plane around after they realized its landing gear would not retract.

Klein said the plane landed without incident. Delta is booking new flights for the passengers who were on board.
