Agencies hold disaster drill at JFK Airport

More than 700 first-responders and volunteers staged one

More than 700 first-responders and volunteers staged one of the largest, most complex interagency training drills in New York City history early Sunday, responding to a staged plane crash and car bombing at Kennedy Airport. "Wounded" airplane passengers were carried off a wrecked JetBlue Airbus A320, which skidded into a hangar at 1 a.m. shortly before a vehicle loaded with explosives smashed into a nearby airline terminal and "detonated," according to the scenario.
