What the Patriots' landing at Logan yesterday was like

Jen braved the storm to video planes landing at Logan during the storm yesterday. Around 11 a.m., she captured a Virgin 747 coming in. The Patriots took a Virgin charter back from London. Could that have been them?

I believe that's also the new JAL 787 Dreamliner coming in from Tokyo.

Patriots landing

I was on the plane w/the Pats. We landed closer to 11:45. But I'm pretty sure we were only 1 of 2 international flights that landed.

Agreed, the JAL flight is the more interesting story. I've definitely seen more Japanese tourists around the Back Bay over the last few months and have tried to go out of my way to help them. They seem like they are spending quite a lot of money and are very polite, well dressed, don't block sidewalks, etc. In other words, model tourists.

Here was a piece NPR did on a restauranteur in the North End modifying menus and portions to be more compatible with Japanese preferences once this JAL flight was started:

I checked Flight Aware late yesterday afternoon

For activity to and from KBOS and saw only two flights in the air, both outbound. One, the chartered Virgin Atlantic 747 deadheading (I assume) back to London (Virgin normally uses A340-600s on its regularly scheduled London-Boston route) and the other one the JAL 787 up over Hudson Bay making its return to Tokyo. It looks like they both turned on their heels and hightailed it out of Boston.

See Something, Say Something

Someone is filming planes landing at Logan? Why was DHS and TSA not informed? Clearly this is a terrorist.
