Around 3 p.m., a report came in about a hijacked cargo plane about to make a landing at Miami International. Whoa.
I made a quick call to airport spokesman Marc Henderson. His cellphone message said he was on the other line. I hung up and hit redial. Henderson picked up on the first ring.
"All I know so far is the plane might have a possible cracked windshield," he said. "I can't confirm anything else."
The plane landed about five minutes later and was directed to a secure area where authorites could check it out. I called back Henderson to find out what the deal was.
The plane and its crew were fine, he said -- no cracked windshield, no hijackers. A good thing. On to the next story.
