Four more Sea-Tac flights targeted with laser beam
SEA-TAC, Wash. (AP) - Airport officials say four more planes have been targeted with a laser beam while heading into Sea-Tac Airport for a landing.
Airport spokesman Perry Cooper told KOMO-TV the pilots of the planes reported seeing a flash of bright red beam while preparing to land Friday night. All four were hit within a 15-minute period, beginning at 8:30.
The planes all landed without incident. All were headed for the airport's third runway.
Investigators believe the beams originated from a place two to three miles north of the airport. They've narrowed their search to an area north of Glen Acres Golf Course and east of State Route 509.
Friday night's incident follows nearly two dozen similar occurrences that have taken place at Sea-Tac Airport in 2009.
