Southwest Flight Lands at Wrong Airport

(AURN/AP) --  Federal officials are investigating why a Southwest Airlines flight that was supposed to land at Branson Airport in southwest Missouri, instead landed at another airport about 7 miles away that only had about half as much runway.

In a statement, airline spokesman Brad Hawkins says Southwest Airlines Flight 4013 - carrying 124 passengers and five crew members - was scheduled to go from Chicago's Midway International Airport to Branson Airport. But the Boeing 737-700 landed at Taney County Airport, which is also known as M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport.

Hawkins says the landing was uneventful and everyone onboard was safe.

Hawkins didn't have information on why the plane went to the wrong airport. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro says the agency is investigating the incident.
