MythDragon: It wasn't until the cargo jet was halfway down the runway at Peter O. Knight Airport, a small flight center on Davis Islands, that the crew realized it had missed the intended landing siteNamely when they realized the runway was about a half mile shorter than it used to be.About halfway down the runway, the crew realized it was at the wrong airport and the co-pilot applied "maximum effort braking" on the smaller runway.Or in military terms "Holy shiat, we're all about to die, lock them biatches up"You'd think if they realized they were at the wrong airport, and hadn't begun braking yet, they'd just firewall the throttle and take back off again.
