The pilots of five flights over the New York City metropolitan area say lasers were shone at their planes overnight.
The Federal Aviation Administration says laser beams were aimed at flights between 9:25 p.m. Tuesday and 12:10 a.m. Wednesday.
The FAA says two of the planes were hit by lasers within 20 miles of Newark Liberty International Airport.
Two other planes were near Warwick, New York, when they were hit. The fifth was 20 miles southwest of LaGuardia Airport.
No injuries were reported.
Lasers can distract or temporarily blind pilots. Pointing one at a plane is a federal crime.
