Passenger Jet Skids Off Taxiway At Logan
It was a snowy Christmas in Boston, and for a time there were no flights allowed in or out of Logan International Airport. High winds and icy conditions kept the runways closed for about an hour while crews caught up with the storm. But by Noon, the airport was up and running again.
However, shortly after 7 on Monday evening, an inbound Jetblue flight from Savannah slid off a taxiway while headed to the terminal. The taxiway was covered with ice and the plane was not able to continue to the gate. According to CBS Boston, no one was injured and the passengers were taken by bus to the terminal.
The Christmas Day storm also caused traffic delays and many power outages throughout the region. High winds hit the Southcoast but we were spared the snow and ice that much of the Bay State saw thoughout the day. The speed limit on the Mass Pike was lowered to 40 mph for several hours.
