SkyWest flight from SFO to Canada's Ontario makes emergency landing

No one hurt as plane lands with partially deployed nose landing gear

Any Tri-Valley passengers who were aboard Skywest Flight No. 6467 to Ontario, Canada are safe after the plane made an emergency landing.

The SkyWest flight traveling from San Francisco International

Airport to Ontario made an emergency landing today after the plane's nose gear failed to go down.

The crewmembers aboard Flight 6467, a Canadair Regional Jet, were unable to get the plane's nose gear to deploy and landed in Ontario with its nose gear restricted at about 10:16 a.m., Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.

None of the 24 passengers or crewmembers on the flight were

injured, Gregor said.

The FAA is investigating the incident.

This flight flew into KONT airport, which is in southern California, USA... NOT Ontario, Canada.

Professional, quality reporting by a fine news journal!

Alright, Good Job for the reporter... WRONG COUNTRY !
Is there an editor for this, or any type of oversight?

Well done, typical media coverage of an airline incident. Nice research.

Really, Pleasanton Weekly, would it be so hard to do 30 seconds' worth of due diligence on the rip-and-read stuff that comes from Bay Cities News?
