New Zealand: Laser aimed at helicopter during training flight

A Helicopters Otago pilot was dazzled twice by a green laser on February 8 2012 as he flew a training flight over Mosgiel. The pilot and his instructor broke off the training session to try and locate the source. They could not determine the exact location. Although police were notified, ground units also could not find the perpetrator. The pilot said that shining the light in his eyes had potential to cause a crash.
