Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews says the flight crew for Thursday's flight 1709 to Victoria, British Columbia, worried the plane might have a fuel leak shortly after it took off around 3:18 p.m. The Boeing 737 with 126 people on board returned to the airport at 3:31 p.m. and landed without incident. The Clark County Fire Department gave the all-clear shortly afterward. Officials say no other flights were delayed.
WestJet spokesman Robert Palmer says the airline cleared the aircraft to continue its journey. The airline did not find a fuel leak. The WestJet website showed the flight taking off again at 6 p.m. Thursday.
