LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Compass Airlines flight heading for San Francisco safely returned to Los Angeles shortly after takeoff because of a mechanical issue.

Compass spokeswoman Stacey Putnam Ross says Flight 6078 operating as American Eagle landed without incident Sunday and all 76 passengers were placed on another plane.

Ross didn’t say what the issue was that caused the Embraer 175 to return. The plane is being inspected by maintenance crews.
