Two passenger jets landed at JFK International Airport today after someone called in a threat to the Port Authority Police claiming that hijackers wearing gas masks were hiding in the wheels of plane. The planes — an American Airlines flight from San Francisco and a Finnair flight from Helsinki — have since been cleared. Worst prank ever.
