Have you ever pointed lasers at planes while in your school days? Well, don’t reveal this in front of cops because you may land in jail for that.
Yeah, that’s right. Also, don’t let the kids around you point the laser at airplanes because according to FBI, recently there has been a massive increase in the number of airplanes being targeted by the laser pointers.
But, why it is illegal to point a laser at airplanes? Could it result in the crash of airplane?
Let’s figure it out.
It is illegal because if you point a laser in the cockpit area, it could effect the visibility of pilots from the windshield.
One pilot recently claimed that he was literally blinded by the light. That could result in the crash of airplane.
And, it is the lives of human beings we are talking about here, so don’t do it.
Here’s the view from cockpit while laser is being pointed at it.
So, don’t do it and don’t let anyone else do it either.
