Aviation Source News is reporting that “the aircraft’s landing gear doors never closed after departure.” It was towed off of the runway shortly after landing. No injuries have been reported.

Anthony’s Take: You never know when there will be an issue on any given flight. It appears that the pilots handled this emergency well and thankfully landed the plane safely back at its origin.
