BOSTON (AP) — A drone has been spotted by the crew of a commercial plane near Boston’s Logan International Airport for the second time in less than a week.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the crew of a JetBlue flight on approach to Logan saw the drone just before 6 p.m. Sunday about two miles southeast of the airport.

The sighting was reported to state police, who are investigating.

A state police spokesman said the drone was spotted at about 3,500 feet, higher than legally allowed.

An aircraft crew also spotted a drone shortly after takeoff from Logan on Oct. 14.

No charges have been announced in either case.
