How a professional pilot could possibly land a giant plane at wrong airport
The story of two pilots landing a Boeing 747 at the wrong airport drew a lot of rolled eyes, more than a little laughter and serious questions about how on earth two experienced pilots could so make such a colossal error. It's easier than you might think. The pilots were flying the massive 747 Dreamlifter into Wichita, Kan., to retrieve the nose section of a 787 Dreamliner. They were supposed to land at McConnell Air Force Base, but instead landed at Colonel Jabara Airport, about 8 miles away. Oops.
