Sen. Inhofe ignores giant X, lands plane amidst construction crew

Whoops. Perhaps that's what Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) said when he landed his Cessna on a closed runway last October. 

According to FAA documents and audio, the senator, a licensed pilot, landed at Cameron County Airport in South Texas last October, on a runway clearly marked with a large X.

There were multiple construction workers and trucks on the runway at the time. Talking Points Memo reported that Sidney Boyd, the man supervising the construction project, said Inhofe "scared the crap out of" his employees. He added that the senator almost caused the driver of one of the construction trucks to "wet his britches."

Boyd noted that Inhofe's plane touched down at first and then sky hopped over six vehicles and personnel working on the runway before finally coming to a landing.

Inhofe had to complete four hours of training in order to not get into legal trouble over the incident, according to the FAA.
