Re: Guy who lasered airplanes.. appropriate punishment?
As someone who lives along the flight path of a major runway at my city's busiest airport, I particularly like the idea of harsh punishments for anyone who goofs around with aircraft in flight.
As for the punishment fitting the crime, this has the potential to be just as hazardous as the incidents involving drunken idiots who storm the cockpit. AFAIK, most of them get locked up.
Besides, what an idiot this guy was to point his laser at the very helicopter that was out looking for the source of the laser.
