From wmctv.com, channel 5 in Memphis...

Pinnacle Airlines flight had to make an emergency landing in Memphis.

A Pinnacle spokesperson said flight 5735 bound for Jacksonville, Florida, from Memphis shredded a tire during takeoff Sunday.

The plane had to circle and burn off fuel in order to land back in Memphis.

It landed safely and passengers were put on a different plane to head to Jacksonville.

Stay tuned to Action News 5 and WMCTV.com for the latest in news, weather and information.

Flight track shows it in the air for 15 minutes, but it shows the plane went down to 500 feet then up to 1000 the next reporting point. It probably flew by the tower before burning off fuel, but it is recorded as arriving at the flyby.

You know, you'd actually probably be surprised how many emergencies happen at airlines every day. My airline is a fairly large regional and we probably average 1 emergency a day.... and we're just one of the many airlines. One day, we had 4 emergency arrivals in the span of one hour into one of our hubs... that was very out of the ordinary though.

Glad everything turned out alright with Pinnacle, sounds like the crew did an outstanding job.
