Green laser pointed at Denver International Airport (KDEN) aircraft

DENVER - A pilot leaving Denver International Airport Wednesday night reported that he saw a green laser shine his way twice.

The pilot of the twin-engine Beechcraft B190 was climbing southbound at around 9:15 p.m. when he saw the laser. No injuries have been reported.

This isn't the first time green lasers shot across at a Colorado airport this year. A Frontier Airlines crew reported seeing a green laser shooting from the ground on March 29 from Grand Junction. The crew reported that the laser illuminated the entire cockpit.

FBI spokesman Dave Joly told the Associated Press in March that incidents are common around DIA but rare in Western Colorado.
