NTSB: Southwest pilots admit error after landing at wrong airport

Posted: Updated:

The two Southwest pilots who landed a plane at the wrong airport in Missouri last week admitted it was their mistake, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

They told investigators they were confused by the small airport's runway lights, believing it to be a larger airport in nearby Branson.  The pilots also said the on-board computer was working fine.

Both pilots remain on suspension as the investigation continues.
