Rescue helicopters and air ambulances crews are being put under immense pressure as they are increasingly targeted by laser strikes, often while patients are on board.
In the past six months, RACQ LifeFlight’s Queensland crews have been subject to five strikes.
In an often life-and-death situation, flight crews risk temporary blindness and loss of control, with Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg chopper crews reporting four separate laser strikes between March and September.
