The headline should read, idiot points laser at plane aiding in search for missing Marines. I have to ask, what kind of person points a laser at a plane?
We do know the following:
1. C130 changed course to avoid. If it came from the ocean it would be investigated.
2. Likelihood of Marine carrying green laser and then it working in ocean extremely remote.
3. Crash debris indicates violent impact so this is recovery, not rescue.
Read The Report By Fox News:
A plane aiding in the search of 12 missing Marines, whose helicopters crashed off the Hawaiian island of Oahu, was reportedly hit with a laser Saturday forcing it to alter its course.
A Coast Guard spokeswoman told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that if crew members had been directly exposed to the green laser, the C-130 Hercules would’ve had to make an emergency landing and the crew would’ve been examined.
Laser exposure could cause temporary blindness. Pointing a laser an aircraft is a federal crime.
