Ryanair flight lands at wrong airport A Ryanair flight has garnered media attention for landing at the wrong airport. Flight 9884 from Liverpool to the City of Derry Airport landed five miles away at the Ballykelly Camp army airfield. News report say the 38 passengers at first thought the pilot was joking when he said that they had landed at the wrong airport, but figured out that he was telling the truth when they saw army officers outside. The passengers had to wait to get off the plane because airport staff had to bring the landing steps over by road. Ryanair said in a statement last night that the pilot had been cleared by air traffic control for a visual approach to City of Derry Airport, but the pilot mistook the Ballykelly Camp for the airport. They are investigating the incident.
