TETERBORO — A blue laser was pointed at a small business jet as it landed at Teterboro Airport late Tuesday afternoon.

The FAA said Air Alsie #6771 was arriving from Minneapolis/St. Paul around 5 p.m. when the crew reported the cockpit was lit by the laser. The plane landed safely and no injuries were reported.

The plane, a Dassault Falcon 7X, seats 12-16 passengers.

Knowingly aiming the light of a laser pointer at an aircraft is a federal crime. The lasers can distract pilots during landing and takeoff and can cause them temporary blindness, according to the FAA.

The website LaserPointerSafety.com says a green laser is stronger than a blue laser but blue is still a hazard.

There were 9,725 reported laser incidents nationwide including 40 in New Jersey in 2021, according to the FAA, with 5,911 nationwide and 31 in New Jersey so far in 2022.
