Multiple planes hit with lasers while flying over Long Island: FAA.

FARMINGDALE, Long Island (PIX11) — At least four flights traveling over Long Island Thursday night were hit by lasers, according to federal officials. No injuries were reported, though it is extremely dangerous to point a laser at an aircraft, particularly green lasers which are more easily seen than red lasers. Shining a laser into the cockpit of a plane is a federal crime, according to FAA. “These lasers can temporarily blind a pilot and make it impossible to safely land the aircraft, jeopardizing the safety of the passengers and people on the ground,” then-FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt said in a 2011 news release announcing harsher penalties against those who point lasers at planes.
