The number of High-Power Laser green strike incidents on aircraft arriving or departing Honiara International Airport at night is increasing. Pilots report a number of laser strikes either on departure or approach to the airport. Some of the reported incidents took place immediately after take-off, and probably before the pilots had fully transitioned onto instrument flight or when the aircraft is established on approach to the runway. The latest laser incidents were recorded on 28 October 2018 with sources coming from Point Cruz and Lungga/Burscreek areas.
