Today on YouTube Treasures, we have a story about one of the world’s largest planes, a Boeing “Dreamlifter” cargo jet, landing at the wrong airport.
Midday Matinee is our people watching, people doing and people being feature. Join the Woodland Creatures for an afternoon break.
This first video briefly explains what happened.
This video is the air traffic control recording of the incident. In it you can clearly hear the confusion of the pilots, which was made worse by the fact that they were talking to one air traffic control center, while trying to land at another airport, with three different airfields in the immediate vicinity. In addition to landing at the wrong airport, they landed at one with a very short runway.
Finally, this video is of their successful takeoff from the very small airport runway.
