laser pointer flashed at air ambulance
Dr. Robert Smith left Launceston at the age of 12.
At 30 a. m. on Wednesday, a pilot and flight attendant transferred a seriously injured person from latbu to Hobart.
Dr. Smithers sat next to the second window of the plane, and after about 10 minutes a laser indicator aligned them.
\"It ended up briefly illuminating the plane and dazzled me, and luckily by then it was pointing to the side of the plane and the pilot was not affected,\" he said . \".
\"The RFDS aircraft is operated using a single pilot, so the laser indicator that affects the pilot can be catastrophic.
\"It is very silly and dangerous to point the laser indicator to any aircraft, especially when this workload is high, it will be even more disappointing to point the laser indicator to the emergency service aircraft.
\"Laser pointers are illegal and criminal acts will be fined up to $3180 and imprisonment up to 12 months.
