A Southwest Airlines jet landed at wrong airport in Branson, Missouri Sunday evening, January 4, 2014. To fly it out, they will have minimum fuel, a windy time  at night when it's colder, push the plane to the very edge of the runway with a tug, use the best flap settings. Airnation Comment

Note:  The airport, about 8 or 9 miles from the intended one, has a 3,700 foot runway, less than half the B-737 minimum.  The two pilots were grounded the next day by Southwest.
