Two commercial flight crews reported a green laser being aimed at their planes Wednesday night as they flew into Logan International Airport, authorities said.

The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed the incidents in a statement.

“The crews of two commercial flights reported that a green laser illuminated their aircraft when they were approximately three miles north of Bedford, Mass., yesterday,” the statement said. “Both flights landed safely at Boston Logan International Airport — their intended destination — and there were no injuries reported.”

The incidents occurred within an hour of one another, according to the FAA.
