INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The first returning flight from Boston arrived around 11:30 this morning at Indianapolis International Airport.
Some of the Hoosier participants in the Boston Marathon arrived to the airports in their marathon jackets.
Those passengers were still carrying the emotional baggage from Monday's blast. Several of them were too shaken to describe the scene in the streets that day.
There were several other runners who did retell the moments before and after the tragedy. When the first blast happened there were thoughts it may have been fireworks.
"I didn't know what it was,"said spectator Brian Brown.
