Kbos Boston Logan Hijack Drill In 2 Hours W/escort

Sat Jun 04, 2005 9:23 pm

10am today, a United 757 with 80 United employees and volunteers, will be escorted into Boston by 2 F-15's and will then taxi to a remote part of the airport where Boston Police Fire Massport Fire TSA Homeland sec etc will drill for three hours of very "real life" stuff.
I hope to photograph the escort...

I photographed this today.
good light not great light.
Both of the fighters were pretty wide from the main (middle) 757 in the threesome. I will upload tommorrow but nothing special about these. It was a TV moment.

I have three photos of the F-15's escorting the 757 but I don't think they are good enough for a.net BUT I want to show them to you all on this topic/thread.
How do I do that?
Thx

Mark,

you have to host the images on the web (photobucket.com or some other one) and then you link them in your post. I don't know if you need any more help, if you do let me know.

Mark,

these are pretty cool. It must have been quite exciting. Too bad the F-15s were so far from the 57. Thanks for showing us.
