The Boeing 747 jumbo cargo jet that mistakenly landed at a small Kansas airport yesterday evening, instead of at a nearby Air Force base where it was supposed to land, is expected to take off again at midday.

The runway at the airport in Wichita is just 6,100 feet long -- much shorter than it should be for the takeoff of a plane like that. But airport officials say the plane should be able to take off.
