Laser pointed at Colorado-bound jet cockpit

The FAA says someone pointed a green laser light at a Southwest Airlines jet departing Sea-Tac Airport about 6:40 a.m. Friday. The plane was bound for Denver.

Spokesman Mike Fergus says Flight 515 was about 7.5 miles southeast of the airport at an elevation of 7,500 feet when the light illuminated the cockpit.

KOMO-TV reports no one was hurt, and the plane continued to Denver.

The FAA contacted Auburn police who checked some parking lots but found no suspects. The FAA says the person responsible could be charged with interfering with the flight crew.
