US Airways Plane lands at wrong airport

Patience was probably the most-needed virtue for passengers aboard a plane coming from Pittsburgh and bound for University Park Airport Friday.

The daily flight on a US Airways affiliate Shuttle America plane ended up landing at Mid-State Regional Airport in Rush Township -- close, but not the chosen destination.

...

Shields said her understanding is the pilot wasn't familiar with the area and, when landing, somehow ended up flying in to Mid-State.

That airport handles mostly private planes, not commuter flights, so an unannounced landing is not unheard of, Shields said.

But not having radio communication was a little strange.
