Roar over South Boston’s Pleasure Bay as planes land at Logan Airport
The beach and boardwalk just before Castle Island are the perfect spots to watch and hear jets make their final approach.
When the wind is right, jets big and small approach Logan Airport from the south-southwest, and their course brings them in over the glassy waters of Pleasure Bay, landing gear out, Blue Hills on the horizon. Slowly, the deep rumble gathers into a roar, building and building until it sweeps across the sky overhead. (The bigger the jet, the better.)
