With social media, all drills are considered live.
Reports of a plane ablaze at Boston’s Logan International Airport turned out to be a training exercise for firefighters.
An airport spokesman said the exercise Wednesday morning that created a stir on social media was held in the same place as all fire training exercises.
Matthew Brelis says the airport trains firefighters from airports across the Northeast using a fake aircraft fuselage. He calls them “almost a daily occurrence” between April and October.
Andrew Zimmern of Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods America” tweeted “Am I alone seeing a plane on fire on Tarmac at Logan in Boston?” and posted a photo. He later tweeted that such training operations “should be announced in airport.”
