US Scareways

At least the drunk pilots are worried about screwing up and pay attention to where they are going...

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Eight passengers on a US Airways Express flight from Pittsburgh to State College got an unscheduled detour last week when their pilot accidentally landed at the wrong airport.

The flight, operated by Shuttle America, landed at Mid-State Regional Airport near Philipsburg instead of University Park Airport outside State College. The two airports are about 20 miles apart.

Joann Shields, business secretary at Mid-State Airport, which handles mostly private planes, said the pilot wasn't familiar with the area and accidentally landed at the wrong airport.

It does make one wonder what kind of wild office party the air traffic controllers were having during all of this?
