A Southwest Airlines plane scheduled to land in Branson, Missouri actually landed in a smaller airport in Taney County, Missouri, about seven miles away from the Branson airport.

And the smaller airport’s runway about half the length of the Branson Airport runway, forcing pilots to act fast and brake hard when the plane touched down.

A representative pilot says of the incident, “It’s not common, but it’s not unheard of.”
