The National Transportation Safety Board announced today that it is investigating yesterday’s incident involving a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700 that landed at the wrong airport.
At approximately 6:25 p.m. CST., Southwest Flight 4013, which was originally scheduled to land at Branson Airport in Missouri, erroneously landed at M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport instead. M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport is located in the town of Hollister, Mo. approximately six miles north of Branson. The airplane landed safely and there were no injuries reported at the time.
The flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder from the airplane have been secured and are being brought back to Washington, DC for readout and analysis. In addition, NTSB investigators will conduct interviews with the Southwest crew this week.
