Whoops, wrong airport!

NBC News) A behemoth Boeing air freighter bound for McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas landed Wednesday night at a nearby smaller commercial airport by mistake, and officials scrambled to come up with a plan to get it back in the air. More than ten hours after the mix-up an airport official said they had managed to turn around the "Dreamlifter" and had determined that it could take off on the shorter runway. "They've assured us they've run all the engineering calculations and the aircraft is safe for a normal departure at its current weight and conditions here," said Brad Christopher of the Wichita Airport Authority.
