Watch a report by ITV News Anglia's Tanya Mercer.
RAF Lakenheath has confirmed that a laser light was pointed at an F-15E Strike Eagle jet as it was coming into land at the Suffolk base.
A spokesperson told ITV News Anglia that it wasn't pointed directly into the pilot's eyes, but it did appear to be coming from the ground.
The aircrew saw what they recognised as a laser reflecting off the aircraft and The Ministry of Defence was notified immediately. A patrol was dispatched to the known incident location.
"Aiming a laser at an aircraft is a serious risk to flight safety. Many high-powered lasers can completely incapacitate pilots while flying. The irresponsible or malicious use of lasers can threaten the lives of aircrew, passengers, and even individuals on the ground should it result in an aircraft crash. It is also a criminal offence."

Fighter jets from the East of England have been involved in fresh airstrikes against Islamic State militants, in wake of the Paris terror attacks.
The Ministry of Defence said Tornado fighters from RAF Marham yesterday dropped a bomb killing a group of more than 30 militants who had opened fire on Kurds in northern Iraq.
The RAF jets also destroyed mortar positions and a hit a terrorist vehicle with a Hellfire missile.
Fighter planes from RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall have also been involved in strikes in Syria since the Paris attacks.
"The first flight used a Paveway bomb to destroy a mortar position which had opened fire on the Kurds. The following mission destroyed a heavy machine gun near Mosul with a Paveway IV, then proceeded west towards Sinjar.
"There was heavy cloud, which may have encouraged the terrorists to assume that they were safe from air attack, but, working very closely with the Kurdish forces, the GR4s were able to guide a Paveway on to a large group of over 30 Daesh terrorists who were massing for a counter-attack; the Kurdish unit subsequently reported that the air strike had been highly effective.
"The Tornado patrol then destroyed another Isil mortar position south-west of Sinjar."
Five fighter planes have returned to the US after the sixth plane in the group crashed in Cambridgeshire last week.
