NTSB tells pilots don't land at the wrong airport

In a safety alert issued on Wednesday, the National Transportation Safety Board reminded pilots why they shouldn't land at the wrong airport.

After two separate incidents in the past six months where pilots landed at the wrong airport (Atlas Air and Southwest Airlines, we're talking about you), the NTSB put out a few tips for pilots to review before landing which include using cockpit instrumentation to verify you're landing at the right airport.

"Maintain extra vigilance when identifying the destination airport at night and when landing at an airport with others in close proximity," the safety alert says.

Here's the link to the alert.
