BOSTON (WHDH) -- There was concern over a bag on a plane at Logan Airport on Tuesday, a day after explosions at the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured over 140 people.
There was not a ground stop at Logan airport. Logan continues to be open.

“Out of an abundance of caution a US Airways flight was remotely parked at the airfield while a bag on board was examined. The passengers were bused to the terminal, the baggage was deemed harmless, and the flight taxied to the gate. Airport operations were not impacted.”
