Authorities are trying to determine who pointed a green laser at a JetBlue aircraft as it was landing Monday night at Palm Beach International Airport – the third time a pilot has faced such a hazard in county skies in the last month and at least the 40th time this year.

Flight 521 from New York’s LaGuardia Airport was on its final approach shortly before 7:30 p.m. Monday Dec. 9 when the pilot reported that a bright, constant laser beam had entered the cockpit, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said. The pilot was able to land the aircraft without incident.

It came days after JetBlue personnel reporting Dec. 1 that a laser light had flashed on their plan as it landed at PBIA. A sheriff’s helicopter encountered one in its cockpit Nov. 29 as it flew over Hagen Ranch and Lantana roads in suburban lake Worth.
