Continental Connection Flight 3222, which originated from Houston, was bound for Lake Charles, La., with 23 passengers and three Colgan Air crew members aboard on Sept. 7. The aircraft, however, landed some eight miles away at Southland Field, a private airport to the west in Carlyss, La. Per standard procedure, the crew has been relieved of duty while an investigation is conducted, Howell's statement continued. At no time was passenger safety in question, she said. While the exact cause of the incident remains under investigation, Howell said an air traffic controller in Houston had cleared the pilot for a visual approach after crewmembers advised that they had the field in sight.
