Turtles on runway cause flight delays at JFK

UPDATE: a reader sends along this audio link (from the WSJ) to the actual turtle incident.  Unless you were one of the passengers delayed for two hours, I think you’ll be charmed by these otherwise professional people going out of their way to avoid hurting momma turtles.

    The Car 97 turtle pickup guy was certainly busy.

    The pilots seemed amused. Rightly so, I mean it’s one thing to get bird struck, but lets’ face it getting a turtle stuck in the undercarriage, or worse sucked into the turbine, you’d NEVER live that one down.
