SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A flight from Mineta San Jose International Airport to Hawaii has been forced to return to the Bay Area Wednesday over a mechanical issue.
According to FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor, Hawaiian Airlines Flight 43 to Honolulu has been diverted to Oakland after a warning light indicating a fuel leak came on. Gregor said the crew did not declare an emergency.
The plane circled off the coast and burned fuel ahead of landing in Oakland at 11:53 p.m. without incident, officials said. There are no reports of any injuries.
It is not immediately clear when the passengers would be allowed to complete their travel to Hawaii.
