    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.
