"I was never fully appreciative of the feeling of desperation until it happened to me," he said. "I did nothing wrong but at any time I could have suffered a revocation of my license."

Did nothing wrong? How many other planes landed on that runway, Sen. Idiot? Not only are you lucky you got a slap on the wrist, you should have immediately been tested for alcohol or drug use. The fact is, you didn't check the NOTAM's, and yet you blame others, or say "ooooh, they don't like me!" How about taking personal responsibility for your actions, you pussy. http://www.avweb.com/avwebflash/news/inhofe_s...

The Legacy of Douglas Corrigan: "Wrong Way" Landings By Commercial Airliners
Jol A. Silversmith (June 2004; last updated September 2010)
On June 19, 2004, a Northwest Airlines A319, bound for Rapid City, South Dakota, mistakenly landed at nearby Ellsworth Air Force Base. Although this incident received extensive media coverage, aviators have been landing aircraft at wrong airports since at least Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan flew to Ireland instead of California (although his flight is widely regarded to have been an intentional stunt).
Despite the tremendous advances in navigational technology since 1938, such incidents continue to occur - most often when two airfields are located in close proximity, and a pilot relies on what he sees out the cockpit window rather than his instruments and charts (although air traffic control sometimes shares at least some of the blame).
This website briefly summarizes previous "wrong way" landings by commercial airliners, not including deliberate/emergency landings; landings on the wrong runway at the correct airport; and approaches aborted before the wheels touched the runway - the latter two of which, at least, would markedly increase the length of the list!(For example, two relatively well-known incidents of aborted approaches are an Air Canada A319, which on August 23, 2003 aborted an approach to Vernon instead of Kelowna, British Columbia, and a British Airways 757, which on September 18, 2000 aborted an approach to wrong airport in Tonsberg, Norway.)
To the best of my knowledge, there is no single source for this information.(However, an October 14, 1973 article in the Los Angeles Times,“Wrong-Airport Landings: the Pilots Blush,” asserts that “Federal Aviation Administration statisticians lists some two dozen wrong-airport landings by airliners in the last five years.”) Such incidents often receive at least brief mention in the media, and some are entered into the NTSB accident database. When possible, I have provided a link to an online account of each incident. Additions and corrections are always appreciated.

Woody, wouldn't these incidents have been investigated by authorities? Wouldn't there be an attempt to determine that the pilots weren't drunk or high? If there was fault found (either pilot or ATC)...

"Jim do you drive a car??how about a boat?? guess you never had some incdent!!...Where ....Here you begged off a citation....."

I am a boater, and of course I drive a car, but the only accidents I've been in is when the other party was at fault. I did get a speeding ticket about six months ago, bu I did not "beg off" the citation. I knew I was wrong and took responsibility for it. What's wrong with that?
