A CAUTION! .....After the tragic events in Scotland last weekend this moron
should be behind bars! if this helicopter had crashed who knows how many
lives could have been lost.

This type of irresponsible behaviour is becoming all to common around
airports, lets take action now before we lose an aircraft with significant
loss of life. 5YRS MIN for this type of crime

Lets name and shame this scumbag so he can face the court of public opinion!

No I have no evidence for that, I suspect from what I have been able to piece
together that BOTH engines failed as the model has built in multiple redundancy system it would seem to point to some type of fuel supply problem.

However pointing LASER pointers at Pilots is foolhardy to say the least,
and landing any aircraft requires skill and concentration. We need to send a message to these idiots that we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour and the only way to do this is convict and hand out stiff prison sentences'

No I have no evidence for that, - So the only connection is a helicopter.

I suspect from what I have been able to piece together - Sorry didn't know you're on the crash site conducting the investigation....... Oh hang on you mean just what you have read and heard from the media. WOW you must be a real expert in air crash Ingestions. Go you!

Whilst I agree with your sentiments I'm not sure I'd want to waste precious jail space on this dimwit when I would much rather it went to a robber or burglar.

Perhaps dangling him from his gonads to the police helicopter for a week will teach him a lesson.
