watching the flight tracker now, they left oakland and they look like they are heading right back into it and landing at the airport.

UPDATE:

They've landed now

Wow, just caught the landing right now. He's down and rolled to a stop.

Apparent gear problem? Did anyone else see the large puff of smoke on initial contact coming from the left rear?

Landing gear problems are, 9.9 times out of 10 a bad indicator or switch. You don't continue to your destination with the gear down, because you wouldn't make it. You don't do a water landing because that would be like burning your house down because you saw a cockroach.

This makes the fifth or sixth older 737 to have landing gear problems this year. At least three in the last three months. The others all suffered a gear collapse.

Actually it looked like a normal landing...


The Southwest Flight 2547 landed back at Oakland International Airport shortly after 10 a.m. local time, according to FlightAware and NBC Bay Area's chopper overhead. Shortly beforehand, the plane descended to about 375 feet and flew by the tower in Oakland so air traffic controllers could visually inspect the landing gear.

"We were all clapping and crying," said Ashley Stasio of San Francisco, who was on her way to visit her parents in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She explained that passengers didn't realize what was going on for some time. "But three hours in," she said, "I knew something wasn't right."

Once the flight attendants and pilots told the people on board what was happening, and that they had to stay in the air to burn fuel, Stasio said that "people started to panic at the end. You never know if they are telling you the truth." She said the woman next to her was crying, others were holding hands and scores of passengers were on their phones. "I'm sure they were sending messages to loved ones," Stasio said.

When they were on short final it almost looked like the left main was down but not quite locked. It might have been the angle though.
