In a series of chilling events that unfolded over a span of just 24 hours, three major commercial airlines were struck by a mysterious green laser, leaving pilots and crew members bewildered.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has launched an urgent investigation into the alarming incidents reported by Alaska Airlines, JetBlue Air Lines, and Delta Air Lines.

The unnerving saga began when crew members aboard Alaska Airlines Flight 836 were suddenly bathed in an eerie green glow shortly after 5:10 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

Not long after, it seemed that the green laser culprit extended their menacing reach, as both JetBlue Flight 988 and Delta Air Lines Flight 803 reported similar harrowing encounters at around 5:40 a.m. on Monday.

With each report, pilots described the laser's blinding presence, casting a surreal atmosphere within the cabins.

While the FAA remains tight-lipped about further details surrounding these incidents, a haunting question lingers: who or what is behind these perplexing laser attacks?

This is not the first time laser incidents have occurred in aviation history.

The FAA warns that high-powered lasers possess the potential to incapacitate pilots, jeopardizing the lives of not only those on board but also the hundreds of passengers they are responsible for.

It is a federal offense to point lasers at aircraft, an action that poses a significant threat to aviation safety.

As the investigation into these alarming events continues, the aviation industry holds its collective breath, hoping for swift answers and swift justice.

One thing is certain – the pilots of Alaska Airlines, JetBlue Air Lines, and Delta Air Lines will never forget the ethereal glow of the green laser, a haunting reminder of the potential dangers that lurk in the skies.
