    People who point laser lights at planes should be treated like terrorists under the law, says a passenger who had a bright green beam shone at his window as his flight landed in Sydney overnight.
    Laser lights were shone at three passenger planes last night, including a Qantas flight from Brisbane just after 9pm, police said.
    Michael Manikas, who was on that flight returning home from a business trip, said a bright green light was shone at his window.

    "I saw it flash around and it was pretty bright so it must have hit around the window where I was looking out.
    "It's a stupid thing to do. I think they should be charged the same as a terrorist should be.
    "If they bring a plane down, they've got 100 or 200 lives at risk."
