Luces de peligro

Una de misterio. El FBI investiga varios casos en los que pilotos norteamericanos descubrieron que alguien intentaba cegarles con luces láser en el momento del aterrizaje:

Pilots from time to time encounter laser beams that stray into the cockpit on approach to an airport, but a recent rash of such incidents at least seven since Christmas has them worried about an organized effort to take down airliners.

Though there have been no reports of accidents caused by lasers, they can temporarily blind and disorient a pilot and could lead to a plane crash.
