Airline lands in wrong airport 

A regional airline flight crew has been grounded during investigation of why they landed at the wrong airport in Louisiana. The Colgan Air crew, flying under the label of Continental Airlines, landed at a private airport eight miles away from the Lake Charles, La., commercial airport where the flight was supposed to go. A Colgan-Continental flight crashed near Buffalo, N.Y., in 2009, killing 50 people. And Colgan is now facing a $1.9 million fine for another incident.
