WBZ TV says passengers were removed from the US Airways Flight 1716 and luggage taken out and placed along the runway.

"Out of an abundance of caution a US Airways flight was remotely parked at the airfield while a bag on board was examined," explained Massport, the airport's operator in a statement.  "The passengers were bused to the terminal, the baggage was deemed harmless, and the flight taxied to the gate. Airport operations were not impacted."

The flight left Philadelphia at 9:24 a.m. and arrived in Boston at 10:12 a.m.
