The incident took place in the Dunmore area of ​​north Belfast.

Both men were testified to the suspicion of endangering the safety of an aircraft.

One man has been released pending a complaint to the Public Prosecutor’s Office (PPS), the other remains in police custody.

A PSNI spokesman said no one was hurt in this “extremely dangerous and reckless behavior.”

“Not only is it a violation of air navigation regulations to endanger aircraft, it is also highly irresponsible and dangerous,” the spokesman said.
