Logan’s seaside location drives safety plans

Calif. crash evokes memories of deadly ’73 accident in Boston

Flying into Logan International Airport can be an unnerving experience, coming in low over the water before touching down seconds later on the runway — similar to the approach that Asiana Airlines Flight 214 made at San Francisco International Airport Saturday before it crashed, killing two people and injuring more than 180.

The Asiana pilots came in too slowly and tried to abort the landing, the National Transportation Safety Board said. The plane hit the sea wall, snapping off its tail section and skidding to a halt before catching fire.
