    I'm amazed that there's scheduled service for a 30-mile distance with an interstate highway connecting the two towns. I understand the need for EAS, but this seems ridiculous.

    (Also: I'm no pilot, but one would think they'd see their mistake when you consider that they were heading for Runway 3 at CKB and instead landed on Runway 5 at 4G7.)
