Laser pointers can be cool toys, but they also pose a serious blinding risk. DO NOT SHINE THEM AT PEOPLE. These videos show the view from a pilot’s perspective when someone shines the light at an airplane. We put pilots in charge of transporting hundreds of people in an airplane safely to a destination, I am sure the last thing you want when you are on the plane is a blind pilot.
Educate anyone you know that has these laser pointers and uses them as a toy on this danger. It is also apparently considered an attack on the airplane and leads to FBI arresting an individual in the next video.
