Faulty door sensor causes SkyWest regional jet to return to San Jose International Airport

Airport officials at San Jose International Airport say a SkyWest Airlines regional jet operated by Alaska Airlines had to return back to the airport after departure because the crew reported a door of the aircraft may have opened during the flight.

Flight 3467 took off from SJC just before 5 p.m., Sunday. It was headed to San Diego.

The cockpit crew landed the jet safely back at San Jose International Airport after turning around just south of Gilroy.

Emergency vehicles were seen on the runway standing by for the landing as a precaution.
