Plane That Landed at Wrong Airport Touches Down in Tulsa

BRANSON, Mo. (AP) - The Southwest Airlines jet that landed at the wrong Missouri airport is now heading back into service.

The Boeing 737 took off around 3 p.m. Monday from M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport in Taney County. Southwest spokeswoman Michelle Agnew says the jet will travel to Tulsa for fueling, then return to service.

A flight tracking website shows the plane landed in Tulsa around 3:30 p.m.

Southwest Airlines Flight 4013 was traveling from Chicago Midway Airport bound for Branson Airport Sunday night. It landed instead at the smaller airport, 7 miles away.

No one was hurt but a passenger described the landing as abrupt. The runway at M. Graham Clark airport is a little more than half as long as the Branson Airport.

Southwest says the pilot and first officer were removed from flying pending an investigation. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
