LOS ANGELES — The Federal Aviation Administration says a pilot reported visual impairment after a laser struck an airliner landing at Los Angeles International Airport.
FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the laser strike occurred early Wednesday as US Airways Flight 674 was just east of Santa Monica at 9,000 feet.
The Airbus A321 was arriving from Phoenix.
The FBI says it is investigating the incident. No suspect has been identified.
