Airplane Pilots Blinded By Terrorist Schmuck With Futuristic Laser Weapon Laser Pen

Val Kilmer laser expert JetBlue pilots

Who does this!?!

Aside from the ill-tempered sea bass from Austin Powers, who actually uses lasers to hurt other people?!

A JetBlue plane bound for New York City nearly crashed after the pilots were blinded by some unidentified Jedi prankster who shined a laser pen at the cockpit from up to a mile away.

One pilot radioed into the control tower for help. He said:

“We just got lasered up here — two green flashes into the cockpit.”

Yikes!! Thank Heavens no one was hurt this time!!

The FBI is searching for the person or persons responsible, but they don't have many leads.

Look, we know lasers are AWESOME!!

We use them in everything from medical procedures to PowerPoint presentations!

Their cultural significance extends from Pink Floyd concerts to the underrated '80s comedy Real Genius, starring Val Kilmer.

But lasers are NOT a toy!

Well, sometimes they're a cat toy… but COME ON, guys, stop trying to crash passenger aircraft with them!!

    seriously. the police were arresting so many people in Brazil due to this nonsense. the laser completely blind the pilots momentarely, and that's very dangerous. the worst, the laser keeps it's integrity for 3, 4 miles so, if planes are landing or taking off, they're an easy target.

    it may not have necessarily been pranksters. it's widely known that many terrorists are using this as a minor attack method. also because it's so hard for them to get caught. just food for thought.

    Re: msconcierge – That's a very useful tool in astronomy, we wouldn't appreciate it being banned. Besides lots of idiots endanger everyone's lives when they drive cars, yet you don't suggest we outlaw those.
    And in case you didn't know, it's a federal offense to point lasers at aircrafts and to own one that is more powerful than 5 mW. So even if they are banned, those idiots will still get ahold of them and do this crap because most of these idiots already have ones that are beyond the legal limit.
