WOODBURY - A JetBlue pilot who lost his luggage at John F. Kennedy International Airport allegedly had a gun inside his bag.

The co-pilot was scheduled yesterday to fly from JFK to Pittsburgh. Officials say the co-pilot placed his backpack containing his government-issued handgun on the floor, but someone else accidentally picked it up.

A flight attendant found the gun when the bag was returned, delaying the flight and bumping the pilot from the plane.

Officials are investigating the incident.
