Have you read the thread beyond the OP?
A C-17 landed in Florida at the wrong airport that was barely long enough for them to stop and takeoff with a minimal fuel load.
Boeing Dreamlifter landed at Jabara instead of McConnell, which has a 6000 foot runway.
A scheduled Delta flight to Rapid City landed at Ellsworth AFB.
American Airlines tried to land at the wrong airport in Fort Meyers.
Southwest landed at M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport instead of Branson.
None of these were directed to land at those airports any more than this flight was directed to land at Fath. Every one of them misidentified the
airport they were bound for with another airport that was close to their destination, and had similar runway headings.
