A massive cargo plane bound for McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kan., from New York City landed at the wrong airport late Wednesday and is now temporarily stuck there.

The Boeing 747 LCF Dreamlifter took off from John F. Kennedy International Airport at 7:26 p.m. and was cleared to land at McConnell, but instead landed at the much smaller Jabara Airport about 10 miles north.
t's not entirely clear whether the Atlas Air flight landed at Jabara on purpose or by mistake. But audio captured by suggests the Dreamlifter pilots informed McConnell's tower controller after the plane touched down, and did not realize where they were.

"Ahh — yes, sir, we just landed at the other airport," one pilot informed McConnell.

No one was hurt and no property was damaged, according to the City of Wichita. The Federal Aviation Administration said it is investigating.

In a statement, Boeing confirmed the plane landed safely, but offered no further details.

"A Dreamlifter bound for McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita safely landed this evening at nearby Col. James Jabara Airport instead," Boeing said. "We are working to determine next steps and will have additional information in the morning."

Meanwhile, the Dreamlifter — a giant, modified 747 that can hold 65,000 cubic feet of cargo — is sitting at Jabara, which has no control tower and normally doesn't handle jumbo jets, according to CNN.

A tug that was sent with a police escort to turn the jumbo jet around broke down en route, KWCH-TV reports. It eventually arrived.
