Last night, an independant pilot flying over Kokomo, IN, radioed to Kokomo ATC a 7600 (radio problems) and the ATC picked it up as 7500 (a hijacking)!!! The ywo men aboard were forced to land at Kokomo, and upon landing were police the end of the runway the men were forced out of their aircraft and handcuffed!!!

All of this just because of a mis-communication!!!
