Fleet Center Skydiving?!

Anyone else hear about this? Some friend of mine asked me about this, said about four skydivers landed close or on the Fleet Center and that there were a lot of troops and that I knew anything about it.

So, I came over to Interference. Hopefully someone can shed some light.

Wouldn't you go to a news site to get news, rather than a U2 Fan Forum?

I did! they have nothing on cnn.com

I figured someone here would have links to other sites or something.

Several heads think better than one.

The Fleet Center is an arena in Boston (U2 played there on the Elevation Tour, it's where the Live in Boston DVD was shot). Here's a picture of it:


This week, the Fleet Center holds the Democratic Convention, where John Kerry will be officially chosen as the presidential candidate for the November elections.
You can imagine that there's lots of attention to security. So if some people would be able to sky-dive from the Fleet Center, that would be quite a big event. However, not even the Boston Globe is reporting this, so I guess it was just a false story.

C ya!

Marty

Ta Marty,

hence the U2 connection.

I thought it had something to do with Honduras.

I will crawl back under my rock now.

If you have Windows Media, there's a short clip here- they say the police will only say they are looking into the claim and don't know if it's true

I thought the airspace there was restricted, I know yesterday there were police helicopters hovering there, MPs, SWAT teams, you name it

There hasn't been a thing in the press here about this. It's news to me.

I don't know if anyone even cares , but the last I heard about this, it turned out to be someone reported it, but it was really just a rooftop w/ some sort of white domes on it

I think maybe people are on edge, which is good that they report things I suppose, because you never know..
