Man Is Suing Southwest for Causing ‘Mental Anguish’ After Landing at the Wrong Airport

  Man Is Suing Southwest for Causing ‘Mental Anguish’ After Landing at the Wrong Airport A passenger is suing Southwest Airlines for “mental anguish,” after his flight landed at the wrong airport. Flight 4013 was scheduled to fly from Chicago's Midway International Airport to Branson Airport, in Missouri, in January 2014. However, the plane landed at M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport, about nine miles away.While a plane mistakenly landing at the wrong airport is itself alarming, the key difference between the two airports is that Branson Airport’s runway is 7,140 feet long, while M. Graham Clark’s is only 3,738 feet.

* When you arrive at the Downtown Aquarium , proceed to the " Dive Lounge" which is the second group of doors, located to the south of the main entrance. Please wait there for your Dive Guide. Included in every Dive with the Sharks !

If you want to swim with sharks in Mallorca, and you have a diving license, you will be able to descend to the tank's deepest point and contemplate this aquarium 's three and a half million litres of salt water with a full and unobstructed view of the Big Blue and its inhabitants.

The steady hiss of air flowing into my helmet made it easy to focus on what we were after — a close encounter underwater with sharks just a few feet away.

The big sand tiger sharks and fast-swimming brown sharks chomped fish that were lowered into the water at the end of long poles. Massive goliath groupers joined the feeding frenzy to inhale their share.

On Tuesday, four of us donned wetsuits and Sea TREK diving helmets to experience what will soon be available to the public: diving in a shark cage inside the Wonders of Wildlife aquarium's huge shark tank.

"I was shaking a lot," said Luke Lygrisese, 10, son of KY3's Maria Neider, who joined a News-Leader reporter and photographer in trying the Out To Sea Shark Dive.

Luke's most memorable part?

"I think it was putting the helmet on and getting ready to go in the water," he said. "It was one of the best times of my life!"

By mid-June, Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium will open the Out To Sea Shark Dive experience to the public. The cost will be $130 per person, or $155 per person during a shark feeding dive.

••• Diving with sharks in the Denver Aquarium . Stephen Frink/Getty Images. I've done both and must confess this land-locked aquarium dive turned out to be one of my favorite dives ever.

Sharks you can go for a dive with . Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay casino resort is a full-blown aquarium , but this being Vegas, it has a theme: it bills itself as “North America’s only predator-based aquarium and exhibit.”

WOW spokeswoman Shelby Stephenson said as far as she knows, WOW is the only venue in Missouri that lets visitors go underwater to see sharks and other sea creatures up close.

WOW provides a wetsuit and rubber booties and a changing room next to the shark tank, with a warm shower afterward. All you need to bring is a swimsuit.

After a short safety video — "Keep your hands and feet inside the cage" is high on the list — we stepped one by one to a sloping platform where an attendant lowered the 75-pound Sea TREK helmets onto our shoulders.

Once underwater, the helmet's buoyancy lightened its weight to 15 pounds, just enough to keep it comfortably in place. The helmet remains attached to a topside air hose.

We stepped to the bottom of the shark cage, with a couple of feet of water above our heads. The cage remains stationary while sharks, barracudas and colorful reef fish swim in front, below and behind the cage.

How do you make a destination autism-friendly?

  How do you make a destination autism-friendly? Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has a busy boardwalk and all kinds of attractions, from mini-golf courses and water parks to a zip line and a Ferris wheel. So it might not be an obvious destination for families with children on the autism spectrum who may be easily overwhelmed by noise and commotion. But an organization called Champion Autism Network is working with hotels, restaurants and other venues to make the area autism-friendly with staff training, events and special accommodations.So it might not be an obvious destination for families with kids on the autism spectrum who may be easily overwhelmed by noise and commotion.

Highlights Dive with the Sharks at The Florida Aquarium in Tampa Bay SCUBA dive with sharks from around the world in the incredible Shark Bay exhibit aquariums in the country, with over 20,000 sea creatures, including sharks , otters, alligators

Sealife Bangkok Ocean World is an Awesome place for scuba diving with 20 sharks in the main tank. We were having alot of fun.Thank you again for a great time and great aquarium . Thank you for today and hope to dive with you again very soon .

A safety diver stayed with us the entire time, using hand signals to make sure we were all OK and comfortable.

I asked safety diver Bethany Roweton if a shark could possibly leap into the cage during a feeding frenzy. She said it's a scenario they've considered, but the shark cage bars rise well above the surface, making it very unlikely that could happen.

For 20 minutes, we watched the sea creatures devour their fish snacks and glide through the crystal clear salt water. The largest goliath grouper seemed interested in some of us, swimming next to the cage to view us with eyes the size of ping-pong balls.

Stephenson said the Out To Sea Shark Dive will be available only through online reservations at the WOW website. WOW members get a significant price break, to $90, or $115 for the feeding frenzy dive.

According to WOW, participants also will get a combo ticket to both the aquarium and museum, a commemorative T-shirt, underwater camera to take your own photos and a souvenir flash drive with photos from the dive.

Participants need to be at least 10 years old and be able to navigate stairs, ramps and ladders without assistance. No diver certification is needed, and up to four divers at a time can experience the shark cage.

The entire experience lasts an hour and a half, according to WOW.
