  Original Published: 11/22/2013 "Wichita, we have a problem." Check this out. A cargo plane made just to carry parts for Boeing's oversized 787 Dreamliner landed at the wrong airport, and may not be able to leave. The Dreamlifter, owned by Atlas Air, was scheduled to arrive at McConnell Air Force Base. Instead, it landed at the much smaller Jabara Airport in Wichita, Kansas. That's nearly 12 miles away. It's not clear why the plane's flight crew ended up at Jabara Airport. But the plane may be there for a while. The runway is too short for the giant plane to take off while loaded. And it's unclear if they can get it off the ground even if it's unloaded.
