Man charged with Laser attack on aircraft

Hope they make an example of him.

A 37-year-old man will face a Gold Coast court next month charged with threatening the safety of airplane passengers.

Nothing will happen to him in QLD. There was a chance to make an example of someone a couple of years ago but nothing happened (despite the fact the culprit was even learning to fly at the time as well).
