RCMP investigate after three flights affected by lasers in B.C.

RCMP in Richmond, British Columbia are investigating this week after three different flights arriving or departing from the Vancouver airport were hit by lasers last week. A spokesperson for the RCMP said all three cases happened on Monday.

Lasers are a problem for flights because the light can be blinding for pilots. Pointing lasers at airplanes is illegal; under the Aeronautics Act, someone who is convicted of pointing a laser into a cockpit of an aircraft in Canada can get up to five years in prison and be fined up to $100,000.

No one was injured in any of the cases and police say they weren’t able to find the person responsible.
