Hahah I thought so. Only reason I noticed was that topic on the speed “break” in the 747 being mis titled. Good topic @Maxmustang

Also happened on a Delta flight from Atlanta. No pilots injured, however.

Ugh! Shameful that a bunch of dumba–es wth their stupid toys purposely cause harm for what use other than being a ----wad.

Someone needs to give these idiots a very hefty fine at the least.


Fix the damn nose wheels!


This is like the fifth laser incident at Logan just for 2016. It is very shameful this happens so frequent.
