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.
