They get lost so easily here

The wire-service story:

A California-bound Southwest Airlines flight was diverted to Omaha, Neb. on Sunday after witnesses said a passenger tried to open a door.

The captain of the Chicago-to-Sacramento flight landed on Eppley Airfield to “have an unruly passenger removed” before continuing on to Sacramento, the airlines said in a statement.

The flight with 5 crew members and 134 passengers arrived safely at its destination about two hours behind schedule.

And where is this mysterious place called “Omaha”? Don’t ask CBS News:

    Only one state off, and on the correct side of the Mississippi. Pretty good for Hanoi Jane’s ex’s digital fishwrap.

    Eh, the less the coastals know about flyover country, the better. Otherwise, they might move here, and price the rest of us out of being able to live here.
