FAA is investigating report of laser pointed at cockpits

Newton, MA -

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating reports that someone pointed a laser light at the cockpits of two airplanes in the Boston area Tuesday night.

One plane was leaving Boston's Logan International Airport headed to Atlanta; the other was an in-coming flight flying over Providence, R.I. at the time of the incident.

The FAA pinpointed the coordinates to Newton, just west of Boston and Logan Airport.

Police responded to a location but were unable to find anyone.

Police in Newton are investigating a different laser pointing incident.  About two hours before the planes were allegedly targeted Newton police were looking into a report from a driver that a man pointed a green laser at him and other drivers Tuesday night.

Police do not know if the incidents are related.
