Pilot's retina burned by 'military strength' laser attack from ground
from Road Warrior Voices
A British Airways pilot suffered burns to his retina after being attacked by a laser so strong that officials are calling it "military strength." While the identity of the pilot is being protected, British Airline Pilots' Association spokesperson Jim McAuslan is speaking out on his behalf, warning about the "growing threat." The victim was serving as the flight's co-pilot back in the spring, and he has not returned to work since suffering the optical injury.
