Crews needed to cool off plane at Logan


An Iceland Air flight in the process of deplaning after arriving at Logan Airport from Reykjavik needed to be cooled by fire rescue officials due to high heat levels found on the aircraft Monday evening, according to the Massachusetts Port Authority. Fire rescue did not see any flames when the plane arrived around 5:50 p.m. and used fans to rapidly cool down the wheel and brake area of the aircraft, said Lisa Langone, a spokeswoman for Massport. There were no injuries, and airline mechanics are making necessary repairs to the aircraft, she said. The outgoing flight to Reykjavik Monday night was canceled because of the incident, Langone said.
