You might think it’s funny to shine a laser at a helicopter or any aircraft for that matter, but it’s actually really dangerous…. it can also get you into some serious trouble. Check out this video of a National Police Air Service’s helicopter as it’s put in danger when someone at a late night party shined a laser into the cockpit.
The man responsible for shining the laser, was sentenced to a seven-month suspended sentence, 250 hours of community service and £400 in fees… And that’s getting off lightly, back in 2012 a 26-year-old man in California was sentenced to 14 years in prison for shining a laser pointer at a helicopter.
