For those of us that have operated in and out of McDill, such a mistake as to confuse any runway in that area on a clear day, to McDill's, is totally mind boggling.

The runway at McDill is huge, I don't mean just long, but extremely wide as well.

I'm not saying the report is wrong or covering up something, but just WOW, how the hell could the crew make such a mistake, no matter how tired they are?

But, anything is possible I guess.
