(SAN DIEGO) — A United Airline flight was hit by a laser Monday night as it was approaching San Diego International Airport.

The pilots of United flight 691 told air traffic control they saw a green laser while the flight was about 5 miles away from the airport, but it did not affect the flight.

“Everything went fine, without incident, and the flight arrived almost 20 minutes early,” a United spokesman said in a statement.

There have been at least three green laser strikes on commercial planes landing in San Diego in the past three months.
