Tampa, Florida - A huge military plane from New Jersey may have mistaken the tiny runway at Peter O' Knight airport for the runway at MacDill Air Force Base.

Take a look at the video and you'll see an Air Force C-17 Globemaster on the small runway. The plane landed shortly after noon Friday, and had heads turning across Davis Island and downtown Tampa.

Since the airport is so close to MacDill and shares air space with the air force base, it's not unusual to see military planes in the area, but it is highly unusual to have one land the small Davis Island airport.

The wording on the outside of the plane indicates that the plane was from McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey. We'll keep you posted and let you know why this plane landed at Peter O.
