CRJ-700 takes off with open cargo door: loses bags after takeoff from MDW
21 October 2007

A Delta Connection flight (ASQ718 to Atlanta) returned to Chicago-Midway because the cabin failed to pressurize. It appeared that a cargo door had not been closed properly. Two bags fell from the cargo hold. An employee of the Belt Railway Company found one bag in a rail yard nearly a mile from the airport.
The aircraft involved was a Canadair Regional Jet CRJ-700. (AP)
