Seattle Seahawks Plane Hit By Laser While Landing Sunday Night

A long trip home after a loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday took a turn for the weird as the Seattle Seahawks charter plane was making a final approach at Sea-Tac airport. According to the FAA, a nearby resident point a laser at the cockpit as the plane was preparing to land. KOMO TV reported the pilot noticed the laser and notified police after the plane made a safe -- but bumpy, according to Aaron Curry -- landing.

The FAA says the incident happened just after 9 p.m. as the plane was about 2 miles out from the Sea-Tac runway.

The plane landed fine and there were no injuries.

This is nothing new for Sea-Tac Airport and plenty of laser incidents have been reported in the past. If the person is caught -- which happens more frequently than you'd think -- the crime comes with a felony charge.

With all the publicity now, somebody with a laser pointer picked the wrong plane to mess with.
