Re: Heard of laser flare lights?

So, if you want to be rescued, don't shine your laser at the helo!!! This guy (from a posting on page 2 of this thread) seems to have shone his off at an angle, away from the rescue helicopter, turning his light into a sort of aero beacon, showing exactly where he was:

Ths Coast Guardsmen involved with his rescue did not seem to mind him having and using a laser.
