Military chopper illuminated by hundred green laser pointers during anti-Morsi protests in Cairo

The following video is impressive.

It shows the effect of hundreds of green laser pointers on an Egyptian chopper (possibly an Mi-8/17 Hip) during the anti-Morsi protests in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt on Jun. 30, 2013.

The lasers make the chopper fuselage appear green and can be seen hitting the blades well. Quite impressive if seen from the ground, much disturbing if observed from the cockpit!

    Great photos and an interesting situ, really dumb on the part of the protesters as the Millitary were there to make shore the Muslims didn’t create mayhem and start killing them .. You have to admire the Egyptian Millitary

      Really Steph? Aren’t the protestors also Muslim? And didn’t the same protestors also destroy the HQ of the ruling party without suffering any consequences??

    Doesn’t do them a whole lot of good if the pilot gets disoriented and the chopper comes down on top of them.
