(with a few of the freqs down at KDEN, took a bit of time to piece it together)

A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700, registration N933WN performing flight WN-225 from Denver,CO to Phoenix,AZ (USA) with 137 people on board, was climbing out of Denver's runway 25 when the crew stopped the climb at 10,000 feet reporting they were now an emergency aircraft and they needed to return to Denver due to the loss of a hydraulic system. The aircraft landed safely back on Denver's runway 34L about 30 minutes after departure.

The airline reported one of the tyres failed on departure, the aircraft has redundant hydraulic systems.

Passengers reported there was a loud noise during takeoff, subsequently they were instructed to brace for landing. The crew told them, a tyre had burst on departure taking one of the hydraulic systems out.
