Pilots blinded in laser attack


A passenger jet coming in to land at Glasgow Airport had to be guided by a police helicopter after a man shone a laser at it, the Sun reports. The police scrambled the helicopter as the plane's two pilots struggled to find their path after they reported being dazzled by the beam of bright light while they flew the Boeing 757 - carrying 200 passengers - over the Castlemilk area.

The newspapers source said: ‘The crew were dazed and confused and needed to check their position. The plane was approaching its final flight path prior to landing when both the skipper and co-pilot radioed that they were disorientated by a beam from the ground. Both were dazzled.'

The plane was guided safely to the runway and police on the ground were able to follow the laser beam. Strathclyde Police confirmed that a 19-year-old man had been arrested over the incident earlier this month. A spokesman said: ‘He will be the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal for offences under the Air Navigation Order.’
