A Boeing Dreamlifter cargo jet landed at the wrong airport in Kansas yesterday, and initially there were concerns that the runway at that airport would not be long enough to accommodate the distance the massive aircraft requires for takeoff.
Today, the plane successfully took off from the shorter runway as many onlookers watched.

Hopefully that’s the last the airport sees of that jet, but you never know.
@liveatc Wouldn’t that be something if they did it again.
