A BA plane coming into land at Heathrow Airport were targeted by a laser beam, police have confirmed.
An investigation has been launched after the captain was struck by the beam.
The plane, flying in from Amsterdam, landed safely.
Just last week a man was jailed for five months after shining a laser pen at a police helicopter while he was bored waiting for a takeaway.
Philip Houghton, 25, directed a laser beam from a small device as the helicopter hovered over his hometown, Hull.
The 25-year-old had bought the pen online from China to entertain his dog, Hull magistrates court heard.
The helicopter was being used to search for a suspect after a shooting in East Yorkshire.
