Turtles Shut Down Runway At JFK Airport! [VIDEO]
How many turtles does it take to shut down a runway at a major airport? 150 is the answer!
Earlier this week, flights at Kennedy International Airport in New York were either delayed or re-routed to another runway while a herd of turtles made their annual trek across a runway.
According to a FAA spokesperson, the turtles were on their way to a sandy area on the other side of the runway to lay eggs. Several port authority workers helped speed along the two-hour process by carrying as many of the 150 reptiles to the other side as possible.
By 9:30 a.m., flights were back on track! Human travelers were able to board their planes and start their prospective journies to and from the runway!
