JetBlue Plane Makes Emergency Landing due to Laser Blinding
A JetBlue flight had to make an emergency landing at Las Americas Airport, Dominican Republic, on January 9.
Authorities said the pilots declared emergency after one or more individuals pointed a laser beam on the plane, impairing pilot’s visibility. The flight was coming from New York at the time.
The plane landed uneventfully. There were 120 people aboard at the time; all of them remained unharmed.
The police are investigating.
