It's an Air China International B747-200.  China Airlines does not
use B747-200 into JFK.  Air China International (or just Air China)
is the national carrier of the People's Republic of China and it is
based in Beijing.  China Airlines is based in Taipei, Taiwan.

I don't know anything about this incident.  However, there is another
post in this group that has some information of this incident.
