Someone tried it with the police helicopter. Needless to say you shouldn't use a handheld laser to take on something with night vision gear, a Night Sun and ground support.

Anyone dumb enough to be endangering any aircraft should be locked up for their troubles. Plus their actions have annoyingly made higher powered laser pointers illegal, which are great for pointing out stars to people (the green ones) or testing your optic fibre run...
