KING5 says that the incident occurred around 9pm Sunday as the Boeing 767 was about two miles from the airport. The pilot was able to land the plane safely, and it was reported to the FAA.
There have been numerous laser/airplane incidents in the area over the last few years, and so far there have been no arrests. Shining a laser at an airplane is a felony.
Nice way to welcome the home team back, huh?
