Good to hear. I got hit by a green one at 3000' going into MDW. I like the 100,000 fine.

Anybody seen or heard from Tanker Clown lately???

I am guessing he is lying low, he was busted by some SWA guys on our pprune, they know who he is and how long he has been at SWA. :). Its kind of funny how now the little girl does not come on here. I for one would still like to know who he is.

David Campbell, of the Air Line Pilots Association, has said that a bright laser can be a huge distraction for pilots.

David really explained to the flying public the dangers of lasing cockpits. Distracting? Yes. Potentially blinding to the guys trying to land the plane? Uh, yes. Not trying to slam David, but what he said is akin to saying "bullets can cause a bit of pain" when describing the effects of getting shot.

I'm willing to give Dave the benefit of the doubt on this. Who knows what else he told the reporter about laser events. The reporter probably dropped the ball on this one.

I don't trust the media, especially the local reporters who are supposed to be "aviation experts." Just take a look at Glen Farley on King-5.

Lasers causing temporary blindness to pilots has actually been covered well. I don't know why this article failed to mention this fact.

I agree with you on this one! Probably took 2% of what he said and printed it.
