Two planes crash on the ground at Logan Airport

14 Jul

Two passenger jets have collided with each other while taxiing at Logan International Airport. Initial reports state that there are no injuries, but one of the planes has extensive damage. A Delta 767’s wing struck the wing of a smaller Delta regional jet, a CRJ-900ER (pictured here). Click here for a photo. Here’s a better photo on the Herald’s site.
The Delta 767, flight DAL266, was taxiing for take off, en route to Amsterdam. The CRJ-900, Delta flight 4904, was departing for Raleigh-Durham.

UPDATE 8:08PM: Boston EMS is responding to Harborside Dr. for a patient with a neck injury from the collision.

Logan Airport

21 Mar

Listening to MSP F Troop, which patrols Logan Airport, and dispatch just advised everyone involved in the VIP detail to switch over to the encrypted channel. That’s probably the most interesting thing I’ve heard all morning (It’s been slow). It makes me curious about who the VIP is, though!

Edit: Now (12:47) they are shutting down the south side perimeter road as part of the escort.

Edit: (12:52) Several twitter users have clued me in that the VIP is, in fact, the Veep, Joe Biden.

Edit: Now (13:42) they are closing down taxiways per US Secret Service request.
