Safety plan unveiled for Boston-Logan after rise in runway incursions
11 August 2005

Following a series of runway incursions on Boston-Logan International Airport`s intersecting runways, officials unveiled a safety plan. New signs will better indicate where planes should stop. Also, airport officials will escort all planes being moved around the airport for maintenance. This should prevent incursions like the one on August 8 in which a FedEx DC-10 was taxied onto an active runway by a mechanic. A JetBlue plane had already been cleared for takeoff from that runway. Since last September, Logan has seen 12 runway incursions. (CNN)
