Yesterday there has been another laser-incident at my local airport LOWG. The laser hit the cockpit twice, but the pilot managed to land the Dash 8 Q400 safely.

I'm taking this recent event as opportunity to ask, if there are any countermeasures at the time, be it in use already or in development, against these despicable people or their lasers?

    $\begingroup$ @abelenky Oh, thank you. In German "blenden" means "to blind", so I just used "blend". My mistake. $\endgroup$ May 25, 2018 at 14:35
