Default Aircrafts

So, post your experience where you thought you might have done something stupid with lasers. Particularly, involving aircrafts. However, the main reason I made this topic, was that, stupidly, I went out on to my deck with my X100, and without thinking, turned it on. I looked up, and an airplane was near (about two inches visually) the beam. :-X Should I be worried at all? I'm worried that they will look at the video and figure out where my house is. :-/ The plane was at normal cruising altitude. Would the beam be visable at that distance?

Default Re: Aircrafts

I live under a flight path :-/ planes are about 2-300 ft above my house and they come in all the time, I have to go to my friends house to point my laser up :'( if it's cruising at 38,000ft I don't think you have to worry your dot will be HUGE by then ~5 miles. I don't think the beam is visible and the cockpit is on the top of the plane so unless it was banking sharply and you could hit a 20ft object at 5miles away moving 400+mph then I think your fine. but don't try to point it at the planes :-X

It would be hard to hit a 20' object 5 miles away, but the dot would have diverged to nearly the size of the plane by then, right?

I'm not really worried that I hit it, I mean, if I did, it would be all over the news. You see stuff like this happening all the time, and wonder how so many people could intentionally do it. I think some of them were accidents, where the plane was almost hit, and the pilots interpreted this as being hit.

Window relections are 5-10%, you got less than a mW i your eye.

If window reflections are 5-10%, that would be about 5-10mW. Not enough to likely do damage, but 10mW could mess with your vision for a few hours or so.

I was out the other night, with my 30mW green , my other friend had his with him too, and we were pointing them in the sky ( as you do ) and I kept checking to make sure there were no planes about and if I saw one I stopped, and so did my friend. But then a helicopter came over and started circling us ( not the first time it's done that ) I was thinking it must have seen the beam from a few miles away. It's done it loads of times before though, I think the pilot wants me to point my laser at it. It just hovers around us for like 15 minutes, then goes away, then comes back 30 minutes later when it sees the beam. So we just keep walking and don't even dare have the lasers in our hands when its there cause even though it's dark, those things can see you as if you were wearing green GITD suits cause they have IR cameras ( damn them ! )

Yeah, seems like that to me anyway, why else would they fly over me countless times circling for up to 15 minutes at a time ? and it's not like it's only once or twice, they go away and come back many times.

I doubt the pilot saw the beam from far away. Do a visual check one night with you and your friend. Have him walk a good distance away too see if he can see the beam as it's pointed up. If you do this let me know what the results are, please.

I was in a hotel in CA with some friends and had a 50mW 532nm on me. I was shining it around outside at night, and prop plane flew over at probably 3000 ft. My friends begged me to shine it at the plane, which I obviously declined. A couple minutes later it got pointed at a building about 1/4 a mile away...and I heard a collective &quot;oh ****...it's a good thing we didn't shine it on that plane&quot; from my friends.
