Another Laser Strike Reported Near Love Field

For at least the 15th time this month, the Federal Aviation Administration reported a laser strike on an aircraft above North Texas.

In the latest incident, a Southwest Airlines pilot saw a green laser coming from the ground about three miles northwest of Dallas Love Field at about 6:16 p.m. Wednesday, the FAA said.

There were no injuries.

On Sunday, the FAA reported eight other laser strikes, including seven on Southwest Airlines planes. One of the pilots in those incidents reported an eye injury as a result of the laser strike.

Earlier this month, pilots flying into Love Field reported six strikes in two nights, three each on Nov. 11 and 12.

Police have been searching for the person or people responsible for the laser strikes. So far, no one has been arrested.

Targeting planes with a laser is a federal offense. Earlier this year, two men were sentenced to prison for pointing lasers at Texas Department of Public Safety helicopters.
