Former council housing official turned businessman John Arthur Jones, 66, was this afternoon branded 'profoundly' arrogant by a crown court judge and jailed for 18 months.
Jones was said to be on a mission against the RAF in a bid to get the jets to stop flying above his home at Plas Cefni on a 100-year-old airstrip at RAF Mona.
When he failed to persuade them the prosecution at Mold Crown Court claimed that he took the law into his own hands, and shone a powerful light at the fast jets while pilots were being trained in night flying for front line combat.
That could have had devastating consequences causing disorientation and the loss of night vision. One young pilot was flying solo for the first time when he was blinded.
“You possess an abundance of self belief in your own ability to achieve things, which transcends all reason and which is born out of profound arrogance. “The consequences could have been devastating. Your conduct became a campaign over a long period of time.”
Throughout the investigation and trial, he has shown no remorse for his actions or recognition of the potential dangers and implications to not only the RAF personnel but also the wider community.

From today, residents in north Wales will have the chance to see the latest plans for the proposed Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station on Anglesey.
Between today and the 25th October, Horizon Nuclear Power’s second formal stage of consultation will take place, giving people the opportunity to view its refined proposals and have their say on developments.
Information about Horizon’s proposals will be on display at a series of public exhibitions across Anglesey and north Wales, where members of the project will be available to answer questions.
We’ve listened to and reviewed carefully all the feedback we have received to date and taken this feedback into consideration whilst updating and developing our latest proposals. This is the last scheduled consultation on the Project as a whole before we submit our application for a Development Consent Order in 2017, so it’s really important that people have their say on what matters to them.
Horizon say the project to build a new nuclear power station on Anglesey will bring significant investment to the island and the wider north Wales region and help to secure its long-term economic future.
Information on the consultation is also available on Horizon's website.

A landlord from Anglesey has renamed his pub The Pokemon Arms - because gamers keep flooding to the bar to use its Wifi.
The Panton Arms in the village of Pentraeth enjoyed a surprise boom of new customers when the smartphone game Pokemon GO was launched earlier this summer.
Landlord Ed Griffiths realised it was because they were using the pub's Wifi - because no internet signal was available nearby.
So Ed got a new sign printed renaming the remote pub as The Pokemon Arms instead.
There's a Pokestop over the road and one of my mates is massively into Pokémon. We joked we could change the name of the pub into the Pokemon Arms so we had the sign printed. It's been a laugh, it's got a bit of interest.
