A Boeing 747 Dreamlifter outsize freighter aircraft was temporarily stuck at Jabara Airport in Kansas, USA, after it landed there by mistake.  With its runway blocked by the aircraft, the airport was closed for the duration of the aircraft’s stay.
The freighter, one of four of the type used to transport sections of the company’s 787 Dreamliners between production facilities, was heading for McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita but instead touched down at nearby Colonel James Jabara airport which has a runway just 6,100ft (1,860m) long.
After Boeing sent a tow-tractor to push the Dreamlifter back to the end of the runway the aircraft was able to leave without incident, enabling the airport to re-open to other traffic on Thursday.
