An air-traffic controler at New York's JFK airport and a supervisor were suspended and are likely to be fired after allowing two 9-year old kids to direct planes at the airport, the New York Daily News reports.

The airport employee reportedly allowed his 9-year old son and his twin sister to give instructions to airplanes during two different days on February.

The man brought his son to the control tower on Feb 16, and then his daughter the next day, the paper reports.

Audio recordings of the kids giving instructions are available online.

The newspaper identified the air-traffic controler as Glenn Duffy, 48 but the Federal Aviation Administration did not identify the man or the supervisor.
