Silver Airways Plane (Flying for United) Lands at Wrong Airport

A Silver Airways Saab 340B on its way from Morgantown, WV, to Clarksburg, WV, landed at the wrong airport on Tuesday of this week. Silver Airways had only been flying the route since August 2nd, and the pilots mistakenly landed at Fairmont, WV, instead of Clarksburg.

The airports are about 11 miles apart, and look quite similar from the air (apparently), and the towers at the airport were unmanned in the evening when the incident occurred.

The 11 passengers were taken to Clarksburg by taxi.
