Shortly before 8:00 a.m today, a 35-year old-woman was killed while driving to work after her windshield was struck by a 200-pound manhole cover that became airborne on Interstate 93 inside the Thomas P. O’Neill Jr. Tunnel.  Full story here and in tomorrow’s Boston Herald.

I photographed a Japan Airlines Dreamliner 787 that was experiencing a fuel leak today, one day after a different JAL Dreamliner 787 had a small fire in its cargo belly. Here are my photos as Massport firefighters, officials and a crew from CleanHarbors, work to contain and then clean up the fuel. Stay tuned for any further details on this incident at bostonherald.com.

I photographed smoke coming out of the cargo hold today as Massport firefighters, with a backup from the Boston Fire department, first investigated and then doused the morning fire. See my photos below of today’s event and also my photos from when the jet experienced happier times at Logan, first in Boeing colors, and then the inaugural flight from Japan. Also check bostonherald.com for any updates on the cause, etc.
