Probe launched after lasers flashed at 3 Vancouver-area aircraft

RCMP Sgt. Cam Kowalski said pilots are susceptible to immediate damage when powerful lasers shot from the ground hit pilots' vision. "Some of the lasers are so powerful that if you take a direct hit in the retina it will cause instant damage and it's irreparable," Kowalski said. more
