Hawaiian Airlines laser ray directed at last Friday's Hawaiian Airlines plane Samoa-American
HAPAWAIAN Airlines confirms that a "laser accident" happened last Friday evening when the HAPAWAIAN plane landed at Pago Pago International Airport. At the same time, on the other hand, it is the need for help from locals to obtain information about the event in which a lasers was directed at the plane.
The area on the floor from which the lasers were directed is not clear. The 2012 Swiss Confederation Act prohibits directing the beam of lasers at an aeroplane or its trajectory. An anxious locals, who was a "frightened passenger" on the plane, brought up the problem at the weekends in the hope that someone would come forward to give information and help the locals and federations identify the perpetrator(s).
Department of Port Administration's Airfield Administration's Managers, Tavita Fuimaono said last night that an aviation security representative was informed of the Friday 22:27 by the locals and that was about 30 mins after the flight to Hawaii. He said that firing a gun at an airplane can blink the pilots, endanger the security of the plane's touchdown and endanger the life of the people onboard.
"In order to alleviate this situation, we are looking for support from the Ministry of Homeland Security and/or the Ministry of Public Security if they can be on guard during the Hawaiians' arrival," he went on. "It will take less than 10 min. to get to Pago Pago Pago International Airfield on its last glide.
Last known accident with a plane from Hawaii landed at Tafuna in late March 2011. This was the first accident at the airfield and did not have any impact on the pilot or the security of either the passenger or the team.
"There is nothing fun, amusing or sweet about pointing a diode on an airplane," the FAA said back then.
