COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gov. John Kasich’s (KAY’-siks) office says a transportation mix-up sent him to an airport nearly 20 miles from the airpark where Ohio troopers had anticipated his arrival before an event at the University of Dayton.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/16iY50x ) reports Kasich’s office wanted the Ohio Department of Transportation’s aviation branch to fly the governor to Moraine Airpark on Tuesday. The request apparently was misinterpreted, and he ended up at Dayton International Airport. That meant the state troopers handling his ground transportation had to scramble to the new location as Kasich was flown in from Columbus.

Kasich’s communications director, Scott Milburn, says the mistake was caught quickly and adjustments were made.

Milburn says it’s the first time such a mix-up has occurred for Kasich.
