No Foolin’: Has The Airplane Laser Pointer Returned?

Print This Post  Email This Post

It appears that the airplane laser-pointer has returned, this time Saturday night (4/11) as Alaska Airlines flight #469 was targeted around 8:20pm as it was landing at SeaTac Airport.

This makes over 20 laser incidents since February.

A Burien man was briefly arrested then released last month. He was alleged to have “accidentally” pointed a laser while at a party, but no charges were ever filed.

The investigation is ongoing, and despite our “exclusive interview” with “Laser Floyd” on April Fool’s Day, there are no concrete leads.

Keep in mind though that pointing a laser at an airplane is not a joke – it’s a felony.
