A Skywest Canadair CRJ-900 on behalf of Delta Airlines, registration N679CA performing flight DL-4813 from Salt Lake City,UT to Chicago O’Hare,IL (USA), departed Salt Lake City’s runway 34R but dropped a wheel. The crew continued the climb to FL350 and the flight to Chicago. The aircraft performed a low approach to Chicago’s runway 27L to have the landing gear inspected from the ground, climbed back to 5000 feet and landed on runway 28R about 25 minutes after the low approach.

The FAA reported the aircraft lost a wheel on takeoff and continued for a safe landing at destination.
