Lasers Pointed at Planes

The Federal Aviation Administration says it is investigating after two different airplanes landing at Boston Logan International Airport had lasers pointed at them. Pilots can be temporarily blinded by lasers.

The first plane was targeted Thursday night.

Authorities say someone flashed a green laser light from the Lynn area at a Delta Airlines flight as it landed. The plane landed safely.

Police searched the area but found nothing.

The second incident happened shortly before 5 a.m. Friday.

In that case, the FAA says someone flashed a laser at a jet three miles southwest of the airport as it approached the runway.

Delta says it is aware of what happened and is cooperating with authorities. The FAA contacted State Police.
