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!
g. In those instances where airports are located in
close proximity, also provide the location of the
airport that may cause the confusion.
"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
FAAO JO 7110.65, Para 7−4−4, Approaches to Multiple Runways
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.
