Massport Aviation Simulation
Saturday totally ruled. 50 City, State and Federal agencies took part in a giant game of make-believe in Boston Harbor.
OK, It’s a little more complicated than that. The scenario was that a jumbo jet called Logan with smoke in the cockpit. It splashed down shortly after and the Fire Department, Coast Guard, Environmental Police, the harbor tour ferry… everyone besides the Duck Boats basically, has to respond to rescue the 200-something souls aboard the aircraft. The survivors in this drill were played by 200-something Massachusetts Maritime freshmen (who were surprisingly bright eyed for 8 on a Saturday considering the stories I’ve heard about my friend Sean’s college days.)
A good time was had by all.
