NEW YORK (AP) - The FBI is searching for someone who flashed a green laser at least twice into the cockpit of a Delta plane landing at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, injuring the pilot.

New York Assistant Director George Venizelos says Friday a $10,000 reward is available for information leading to the arrest of whoever shined the laser beam into Delta Flight 1102 just before 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Venizelos says the laser caused flash blindness and severely disrupted the vision of one of the plane’s two pilots. He says agents believe the laser originated from somewhere along Queens Boulevard in the Elmhurst neighborhood of Queens.

The plane, traveling from Atlanta, Ga., landed safely.
