US: Spokane County searches called off due to laser interference
09 Aug 2012 -- Categories: Aviation incidents | Interrupting mission
Searches by the “Air One” helicopter in Spokane County, Washington, are being called off due to laser pointer interference. In July 2012, the helicopter was targeted five times. Other local air crews with MedStar and Fairchild Air Force Base have had trouble as well. Authorities are asking the public for help in stopping the laser strikes.
