2 JetBlue planes hit by lasers near Boston, FAA says


Since 2010, 277 pilots have reported injuries caused by laser strikes, the FAA said.

September 21, 2023, 1:53 p.m.

Two JetBlue planes were hit by lasers near Boston on Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The crews of JetBlue flights 494 and 972 reported being illuminated by a green laser early Thursday morning, the agency said. There were no injuries, according to the FAA.

Last year, the FAA received 9,457 reports of laser strikes against aircraft, down slightly from 2021’s record of 9,723.

Former acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolan previously called on manufacturers to warn consumers about the risks of pointing lasers at planes, saying the products can “incapacitate pilots, putting putting thousands of passengers in danger every year.

Since 2010, 277 pilots have reported injuries from laser strikes, according to agency data.

People caught shining lasers on an aircraft can face fines of up to $11,000 per violation.

JetBlue did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
