Strip Club Nearly Blinds Southwest Pilots At Love Field

Strip clubs and cockpits don’t mix, at least not when there’s a spinning search light involved, says the FAA. The agency has asked Bombshells, a club near Love Field Airport in Dallas, TX, to keep its newly installed rooftop light turned off after the pilot for a Southwest flight reported his cockpit was flooded with light while trying to land the plane. The pilot feared that it was a laser strike, which can cause temporary blindness.

The club’s manager says he was promised the light was installed at an angle that wouldn’t interfere with planes.

I have been trying for half an hour to come up with a good joke about strip clubs, cockpits, and temporary blindness. I turn these terms over to you.
