Pilots Messing Up….A Lot
U.S. commercial flight pilots have almost touched down or landed at the wrong airport at least 150 times in the past 20 years.
The reason most pilots gave as to why they made the mistakes is because of both bad weather and runway lights at night.
They said they were confused about one runway and another at night and/or during inclement weather.
The breakdown of the blunders according to an AP report,is 35 landings and 115 approaches or aborted landing attempts at wrong airports.
