Plane 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. Friday destined for Detroit with 49 passengers and three crew members on board. Pilots turned around the plane after they realized its landing gear would not retract.

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