(ABC News) Police are investigating another case of a laser light being shone at an aircraft. They say it involved a Qantas flight arriving in Adelaide from Perth at about 10:00pm ACST yesterday. South Australian police say the light came from the area of Mount Crawford forest, just north-east of Adelaide. Peter Gibson of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority says police have been using tougher laws in many states to deal with offenders who shine the lights toward the cockpits of aircraft. "It's an incredibly irresponsible and silly thing to do - thankfully a number of people have now been caught around the country for doing this," he said. "A number have been sent to jail and, if people keep doing it, more people will end up before the courts." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
