Southwest pilots suspended after landing jetliner at wrong Branson airport

As soon as the wheels touched, the pilot laid on the brakes and didn’t let up. Passengers lurched forward, seat belts digging into their middles. The plane eventually squealed to a stop — and just sat there. “Welcome to Branson,” a Southwest Airlines flight attendant announced over the intercom Sunday evening. Well, sort of. The pilot then came on and said: “I’m sorry, ladies and gentlemen. We landed at the wrong airport.”
