No, YOU land this thing

I would think that your average pilot would sometimes mistake a runway at one airport for one at another.  You're a thousand feet or two in the air, and there's a couple of cement slabs below you, who wouldn't choose left when they should have went right?

More comical to me is the report that since this plane landed at an Air Force base that the passengers were instructed to pull down their window shades and not look outside.  That had to be a fun announcement to make.  Who was in charge of enforcing this?  Did the passengers use the buddy system and rat each other out?  How far will the average flight attendant go for national security?  We can't have a plane load of people seeing what goes on at an Air Force base in South Dakota.

You know, just when Donald Rumsfeld thinks he can't handle anymore...
