A Boeing 747 Dreamlifter cargo plane has taken off safely from a tiny airport in Kansas after it landed there by mistake.

The huge cargo jet had been heading for McConnell air force base in Wichita, but instead touched down at nearby Colonel James Jabara airport.

There had been questions as to whether the plane would be able to depart from the much shorter runway at Jabara.
