Laser attacks to helicopter - Do this in the USA and go to jail.

Talk about laser attacks to aircraft:

I hope that pilot had goggles on and was flying by video heat signature or something because this could blind them enough to where they loose control and crash on you.

What happens if you put one of these on your lawn and some aircraft gets hit by a random ray from it?

It wasn't even an attack. The people in the crowd were in support of the military, not against it, and the pilots likely weren't bothered.

Yea we discussed that last time in another thread quite funny way to support your military, None of us would support our military like that
but realistically from an LPF POV, it is an attack....... I Have to Say that pilot must have had some good eye protection, or hes just an experienced/prepared pilot etc
