Men sentenced for shining laser into landing aircrafts

Three men who shone a laser into the cockpit of three planes have been sentenced.

Alex Parker, 19, was sentenced to 7 months in jail and Craig Appleby, 20, and Luke Walters, 21 were sentenced to five months.

Anyone who aims a laser at planes coming in to land will get a custodial sentence. The danger of pointing a laser at planes coming to land is obvious, pilots risk being dazzled endangering the crew and passengers.
