Two separate planes are struck by lightning in the same night

BOSTON (AP) - A spokeswoman for Boston's Logan International Airport says two planes have landed safely after being struck by lightning.

Massachusetts Port Authority spokeswoman Lisa Langone says a JetBlue flight from Tampa, Fla., landed just after 9:20 p.m. Friday. She says the pilots reported smelling smoke in the cockpit.

About a half-hour later, a JetBlue flight from Baltimore landed in Boston after being struck by lightning.

No one was injured on either flight. JetBlue Airways Corp. is based in Forest Hills, N.Y.
