Laser light flashed at plane landing in Spokane
Police are looking for the person who flashed a green laser light on a plane landing at Spokane International Airport.
The Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle landed safely Monday night. The crew had a medical check as a precaution.
Airport Director Neal Sealock says a laser light disruption endangers an aircraft.
The green light reportedly came from the South Hill neighborhood where some flights have been rerouted during a four-month project that began this month on the main Spokane runway.
Laser lights also have repeatedly been flashed this year on planes landing at Sea-Tac Airport.
