Re: Laser Aircraft Tracker


I just had a bad thought about that helicopter crash in Indonesia.
I wonder if Sea Squid actually got his prototype RCPlane Hunter working.
Glue filled watergun to disable the blade and cotton wires to drag
it to
the ground.
MMMmmmm the mond boggles :-)

This is not entirely a joke. Several years ago Russian ships were found in
the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Washington State and Canada, firing laser
beams at US aircraft flying from the Naval Air Station at Port Angeles.
One aircraft crewman wound up in hospital after he looked at the
Russian ship just as it fired its beam. Or so the story goes.
It was in all the newspapers.

The (then) Soviets did this with the Challenger Space Shuttle in 1984
too. (See <http://www.astronautix.com/flights/sts41g.htm )
