Enormous Boeing jetliner mistakenly lands at Jabara Airport

By Marc LaVoie. CREATED Nov 21, 2013

A Boeing Dreamlifter cargo jet that was supposed to land at McConnell Air Force base mistakenly landed at Jabara Airport in northeast Wichita.

Our news partners at KWCH spoke with 911 dispatchers, who say Boeing hopes to fly the plane out of Jabara, near 21st and Webb Road, but that has not been confirmed. 
 
Jabara is nine miles from McConnell. The landing occurred at about 9:20 p.m. Wednesday. 
 
The Dreamlifter is a 747 with a cargo hold custom enlarged to carry large parts for the 787 Dreamliner.
