    Someone pointed a laser at a United Airlines plane landing at San Francisco International Airport Tuesday morning but did not affect the plane's landing, an airport duty manager said.

    The incident was reported at 5:50 a.m. and involved United Flight 955, which departed from Tel Aviv, Israel, duty manager Russ Mackey said.

    The laser "did not have any operational impact" on the landing, Mackey said.

    San Francisco police interviewed the plane's crew following the landing, but no information about the investigation into who pointed the laser was immediately available, according to Mackey.
