Calgary police ask for tips

Monday, September 16th, 2013

On Tuesday night, someone pointed a laser at two different incoming commercial flights at the Calgary International Airport. Police are investigating and are asking for the public’s help. A blue laser was used, and came from somewhere in the community of Whitehorn at around 9 p.m.

There are two reasons why this scenario can be dangerous: first of all, landing a plane takes a lot of attention and a laser can cause a distraction or temporary blindness, causing a crash. Second, the laser can cause retina damage when shone directly into someone’s eyes.

The laser was blue, which is rare.
