Boston's Logan International Airport has apologized for choosing the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks for a runway fire drill using smoke.

The hijacked jets that hit the Twin Towers in 2001 both took off from Logan.

The airport started off well on Facebook this morning, with a simple message:
