A Compass Airlines Embraer ERJ-175 on behalf of Delta Airlines, registration N604CZ performing flight DL-5689 from Salt Lake City,UT to Denver,CO (USA) with 79 people on board, departed Salt Lake City's runway 16R. The aircraft was descending towards Denver when the crew reported a possibly blown tyre and requested emergency services on standby. The crew advised there had been tyre debris found on the departure runway. The crew initially considered a low approach but decided to go for a full stop landing right away. On final to runway 16R the left main gear did not indicate down but remaining in the up locked position prompting the crew to go around from about 1500 feet AGL. The aircraft entered a hold to work the related checklists, but was unable to resolve the problem. Emergency services stepped their alert level from 1 up to 3 in response and considered a further increase of alert level. The airport closed both runways 16L and 16R for the arrival of the aircraft. The crew prepared for a partial gear up landing and advised they were planning to evacuate the aircraft on the runway. Emergency services reported, watching the aircraft on short final, that all gear was down. The aircraft touched down safely and rolled out without further incident, the crew advised they'd still be evacuating on the runway, brought the aircraft to a stop. Emergency services reported everything appeared normal on the aircraft, wings were level, aircraft safely on all gear struts, all tyres inflated, no smoke or fire. Emergency services reduced their alert level to 1 again, runway 16L reopened. The crew did not initiate an evacuation, but requested company mechanics to look at the gear. Following the inspection the aircraft was towed to the apron, where the passengers deplaned normally.

The FAA reported the aircraft landed safely with a blown tyre, there was minor damage to the aircraft.
