Of course it has never happened before

Like Milltown is parallel with Lossie but 3.5 miles SE.

Or even Cottesmore and Wittering which are 10 miles apart.

These of course are both displaced horizontally but I am sure there are many other instances of aircraft landing short, possibly Easy Kirkby and Coningsby I seem to recollect (when the former was an emergency landing airfield at 6500ft).
