It doesn't happen often, but it can happen. Here's an excerpt out of the FAA 7110.65T which is our air traffic control SOP relating specifically to visual approach clearances. This example just happens to be my airport and one of our satellite airports 10 miles north of CLE. So for there to be a specific mention of it in the .65, it has to have happened a few times before.

Since the tower was closed, it's possible the Colgan crew was on the freq for Lake Charles but goofed and still landed where they did. OOPS!

http://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Order/ATC.pdf

g. In those instances where airports are located in
close proximity, also provide the location of the
airport that may cause the confusion.
EXAMPLE−
"Cessna Five Six November, Cleveland Burke Lakefront
Airport is at 12 o’clock, 5 miles. Cleveland Hopkins
Airport is at 1 o’clock 12 miles. Report Cleveland Hopkins
in sight.”
REFERENCE−

Yikes. Seems like a comedy of errors there.

Still... a career ender? I dunno, given the chance I'd laugh my ass off at the pilot and tell him not to do it again

We had a good one back in the 70's, C-130 coming into Gray AAF, Fort Hood. He's in contact with the tower, clearance, breaks out of the clouds, sees the runway infront of him, and lands...............I understand it really got the attention of the tower at Hood AAF when that C-130 suddenly rolled by.

Back when I was taking flying lessons, another student landed at LRAFB, I think they meant to land a KLIT which is a few miles down the road, but is in the "path" from the flight schools home field.
I guess the C-130's must have clued him in.........

Here is the thing, many of the flights are coming in on VFR, visual flight rules. Basically the plans for VFR is see the runway and hit it, softly. Its VERY easy to make a mistake. As a private pilot student I have been damn near over an airport and almost missed it. As a professional, never.

There was an FB-111 that overflew it's huge N.Y. S.A.C. base in bad weather, and landed at a nearby tiny civilian airport by mistake.

The field was too short to attempt a takeoff, so the USAF had to disassemble the bomber and truck it back to base.

30 years later, I'll bet that crew is still getting hounded for it.

Yep, and from the story I read, the LSO realized the guy was responding backwards to his signals, figured out what was up, and notified the flight deck crew.

You have to remember that except for the first third or so of the war many of the Jap pilots were very inexperienced and haveing folks shooting at your plane tends to make you fly in other than a nice straight compass course.

Fighters had a restricted flying range and it was not unusual for a returning pilot to be somewhat lost,low on fuel and franticly searching for his ship under cloud cover and darkness. Wouldn't be out of the question for an inexperienced lost pilot low on fuel to spot a ship thru cloud cover and quickly drop down and try to land

Here is a compilation of errant landings.

http://www.thirdamendment.com/wrongway.html


I found that link while I was trying to find a picture of the 707 that landed at the Ohio State University airport.

If you go to the airport itself there is a picture of the 707 sitting on the tarmack and the people deplaning. I couldn't find a picture on the web but I didn't look that hard.

It's a pretty big fucking mistake to land at OSU instead of CMH

You'd have to be an ass clown to confuse Burke for Hopkins.

Hahaha, I would agree but in the 3 1/2 years I've been here, I've seen it nearly happen once already.

There is an ILS to 15 and a back course to 33.

I don't think I have much sympathy for this crew.

So for there to be a specific mention of it in the .65, it has to have happened a few times before.

Since the tower was closed, it's possible the Colgan crew was on the freq for Lake Charles but goofed and still landed where they did. OOPS!

http://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Order/ATC.pdf

g. In those instances where airports are located in
close proximity, also provide the location of the
airport that may cause the confusion.
EXAMPLE−
"Cessna Five Six November, Cleveland Burke Lakefront
Airport is at 12 o’clock, 5 miles. Cleveland Hopkins
Airport is at 1 o’clock 12 miles. Report Cleveland Hopkins
in sight.”
REFERENCE−
FAAO JO 7110.65, Para 7−4−4, Approaches to Multiple Runways


This.

It happens. One of my instructors talked about guys confusing Austin and bergstrom AFB.


We've also had to remind a couple guys their airport is at two o clock and three miles and they appear to be a little high for an approach.

Yep, and from the story I read, the LSO realized the guy was responding backwards to his signals, figured out what was up, and notified the flight deck crew.

Fog of war and all that, dontcha know.


You guys are serious? Any links to that story? I've never heard that before.

I do recall an A7 landing on the wrong carrier during Desert Storm. The flight deck guys plastered the plane with stickers from their carrier and sent him on his way.

Didn't see it on the above link, and am telling a 2nd hand story: A supervisor I used to work with at Delta was working in Alexandria, LA (ESF) (I believe this was in the late '60s/early '70s.) B727 (If I remember correctly) is late one night and lands at England AFB (currently AEX) in error. The flight crew told the passengers that there was some construction between the runway they landed on and the terminal. They would have to take off and land on another runway to be able to get to the terminal. They then took off from England and landed at ESF. The way I heard it, they would have gotten away with it, but a passenger wrote a letter stating that they didn't appreciate the extra landing. Busted!

A commercial plane trying to land at the local airport here got screwed up and landed at Ellsworth AFB a few years ago.
