(KMOV) -- The FAA released the recordings from the Southwest Airlines flight that landed at the wrong airport in January.

The Southwest jet touched down at an airport in Branson, Missouri, about seven miles from where it was supposed to land.

According to the recordings, the pilot didn’t realize he'd made a mistake until after he landed and communicated with air traffic control.

No one was hurt.

The FAA and NTSB are still investigating
