Every day, almost 30,000 planes take off and land in the United States without a hitch. But a new report released by the Associated Press found at least 150 flights have landed or almost landed at the wrong airport since the mid-90s. These flights include a cargo 747 that landed at a small Kansas airport last fall, eight miles from its intended target. And there was a Southwest 737 last month that was headed for Branson, Mo. but ended up at a small airport seven miles away.
A small plane and a hot air balloon had to make unexpected landings Wednesday night in Carver County, authorities say.
