What's all this crap about long runways and V1 and TOPMS?

Southwest dudes mistake Branson "International" airport for Branson Downtown Airport...3700 ft.

Oh, shit, brake hard...land without much to spare.

Offload (probably offload a bunch of fuel do your arithmetic.)

Fly the plane back out of there.

Serious comments:

Genuinely impressed, I would have expected at least an APPEARANCE of dragging over the fence. Yeah, arithmetic and somewhat empty tanks and no freight.
