Default WestJet pilot injured by laser light!

WestJet pilot injured by green laser light en route to Orlando

https://www.ctvnews.ca/world/westjet...ando-1.4432362

DELTONA, Fla. -- Federal Aviation Administration officials say a pilot flying from Newfoundland to Orlando International Airport had his eyes burned by a green laser light.

Spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in an email that the WestJet Airlines aircraft was about 40 kilometres from the airport when the laser light hit the pilot.

The flight landed safely a short time later, and the pilot was placed on medical leave, which is routine in such cases.

The FAA notified the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, which sent a deputy to a central Florida address pinpointed as a possible source of the light.

The sheriff's office says no one there had any knowledge of the incident and said they don't have a laser pointer.

The FAA is investigating.

People are going to keep "having fun" until they cause a fatal crash.
Stupid.

They catch them once in a while, but not nearly enough. VERY.VERY dangerous.
