Southwest Airlines landed at the wrong airport - what happens to the pilot(s)?
Last night, instead of landing at Branson (MO) airport, the pilots landed (presumably by accident) at the Taney County airport (downton Branson), that has a runway about half as long.
What happens to the pilots of the 737, who clearly screwed up? Are they fired for incompetence? “Re-educated”? Do they have to re-take their navigation class?
Of course, this could have been MUCH worse – but what’s the punishment for landing at the wrong airport?
