A plane that had to make an emergency landing at Oakland International Airport is back on its way to Hawaii.
Alaska Airlines Flight 837 took off around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning from San Jose Mineta International Airport bound for Honolulu.
Soon after takeoff, the plane, a Boeing 737, hit a bird and was forced to land in Oakland.
The plane was checked out and deemed safe to head back out.
No one on board the plane was hurt.
