JetBlue flight struck by lightning

A JetBlue aircraft bound for Bermuda had to make an emergency landing at Logan Airport in Boston this morning after an apparent lightning strike

Flight 1731 left John F Kennedy Airport in New York when the pilot reported a possible lightning strike after the plane's radar went out at around 9.30am about 15 miles outside of Boston.

United States media reports say the plane landed at Logan at 9.44am without incident. No one was injured on board.

Passengers have been put on another flight to Bermuda as maintenance crews inspect the plane, according to JetBlue.
