Runway error (http://www.kuwaittimes.net/Navariednews.asp?dismode=article&artid=411456685)

KUWAIT: Catastrophe was narrowly avoided at Kuwait Airport Tuesday evening when an inbound plane from Cairo landed on a runway that had been closed for maintenance. The pilot managed to brake sharply and avoid hitting the obstacles on the runway. As the flight landed at 8.20 pm passengers instantly realised that the plane was stopping in an unusual way. On enquiry, they discovered that they had landed on the wrong runway.
