CAROL COSTELLO, CNN ANCHOR: We have this just in to CNN. You're taking a look at a cargo plane that has overrun a runway at JFK Airport in New York. Now, we donít know if the plane was taking off or landing, but you can see damage to the plane. Underneath the plane you can see the rubble underneath the nose of this cargo plane.
We don't know how many people were on it, but it's probably just a pilot and co-pilot. We're not sure of that. And we don't know if it will affect runways for passenger planes. We understand that there are a set of separate runways for cargo planes to take off and land, but they do share some runways with passenger planes.
We're going to check all of that out for you just in case you happen to be flying out of JFK this morning.
