Lasers @ Sea-Tac

Twelve different flight crews reported that someone was shining a laser into their cockpits as the aircraft were making their final approach Sunday evening at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

“an unauthorized laser illumination event”

I want to say this is not the first time we’ve heard about this…what the hell is up with SEA?!

It’s all that coffee they drink out there, scrambles their brains :laughing:

I’m sure it’s kids, they know not what they do.

At my old flight school there were a few reports of this.

Were there sharks with the “lasers”?

Second Sunday in a row…

Film @ Eleven:

laser only video with audio

BUSTED!!! :stuck_out_tongue:

That’s from the January incidents Rob, not this past week’s.

When I was working at IWA as a CFII I got lased with a green laser 3 times over a year’s period. The first one happened and I got onto tower freq and advised them and I gave them the best location I could. I was off the next day, but the next day I came back and they said an FBI agent came to see me and handed me his card.
The second time, I got on PHX approach and they advised me to go to a seperate freq to tell them what’s going on. They tlod me I wasn’t the first case that night.
Thats not stuff to play around with. It makes us angry


IKR But Smokey zero’d right in on that dude!

Let’s hope they do it again!

WaSP better be out there Sunday night!


Port of Seattle police have arrested a 24-year-old Burien man in connection with the recent pointings of a laser beam at planes approaching Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

The man, who was not identified, was taken into custody at 4 p.m. Friday, the Port said in a news release Saturday night. He was booked into the King County Jail, with bail set at $100,000, and held on suspicion of unlawful discharge of a laser, a felony.

24 Years Old…Nothing better to do at 24 years old? How about going out and trying to get some pu…nahhhh


LOL Agreed. Then again, sometimes that causes more problems. :laughing:

Either Or…He’d been in it for life…

i would rather he be in jail, since im sure he already has 4 or 5 kids by now. get him as far away from the kids as possible.

This has been happening about once a week.
