I saw this on approach and figured he was going for MacDill. Had to explain what it was to my coworkers since we usually only see tankers. Apparently he mistook Davis Island's little 3500 foot runway for the one at MacDill.

They will be fine. I believe the official STO is 3000 feet but as the vid Travis posted shows, it can be much shorter.

If they publicize it you can bet there will be hundreds of vids. I heard they might do it Sunday in which case I'll be in the woods and unable to film.

Had it been fully laden with cargo, that would have probably been a no go. Send in the trucks to partially unload it.

How the hell do you end up landing at the wrong airport?! Is there a tower that has to clear you and tell you which runway to hit. And once you notice you're approaching into the wrong airport, why don't you ramp the throttles up and touch-and-go!

Somebody had to graduate at the bottom of Pilot's class. You have now seen him in action.

DOH!

ok, taking these one by one.

Yes, dumbshit move, really dumbshit considering the runway at MacDill is almost 12k feet long and the one they landed on was 3500. Also there is a major base and parking ramp attached to MacDills runway. How they missed that is beyond me.

Getting it out isn't an issue. They flew another crew in and its already gone. The C-17 is designed to be able to work on 3000 foot dirt strips, paved makes it easy.

C-17s are one of the most sought after aircraft in pilot training, you can be relatively sure no one on that crew finished below the top half, even great pilots do really dumbass shit from time to time.

Sucks to be them though. I wonder if they'll keep their wings. There will be checkrides aplenty for that crewfor sure after this since I'm sure they've already been deemed "unqualified" in the aircraft.

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.
