March of the Turtles

Hilarious!!! On June 29th at Kennedy Airport 150 turtles crossed a runway to get to the other side. And to lay eggs.

At first, it was just a trickle of turtles meandering across runway 4-left, which extends out into Jamaica Bay. They were headed from the west side to the east, which features a sandy beach that's an ideal place to lay eggs, said Ron Marsico, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport.

Listen to the air traffic controllers trying to keep the pilots aware of the situation.
