C-17 Lands At Wrong Airport In Tampa

Posted by BloopZone on Jul. 21, 2012

The U.S. Air Force has yet to explain how a massive C-17 military cargo plane ended up landing at the wrong airport Friday. The plane bound for MacDill Air Force Base on the southern tip of Tampa accidently landed at the tiny Peter O. Knight Airport in the middle of homes on Davis Islands. Peter O. Knight is approximately four miles north of MacDill but significantly smaller in size. Witnesses and nearby homeowners near the airport, when the plane landed, say they could hardly believe their eyes and feared the aircraft may crash through the end of the small runway and end up in Tampa Bay.
