Cannon fire, screaming jets will commemorate commissioning of new warship, not outbreak of hostilities

Boston Police alert us that between 8:45 a.m. and 11 a.m. both tomorrow and Saturday, the Navy will have cannons blasting and fighter jets zooming over the Reserved Channel to help celebrate the formal commissioning of the USS Thomas Hudner.

The ship is named after Fall River native Thomas Hudner, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for crash landing his fighter jet in Korea in 1950 in an attempt to save another pilot who had been shot down by the Chinese.
