Hi everyone,

I'm new on the forum but not on Anet.
I also like by this way, to thank the full Anet crew, members and photographers for their efforts to make our passion worldwide known.

I wonder, if after 3/11, security is enforced on European airports. I mean are there area (temporarily) closed, or more hassle than usual when spotting somewhere around an airport?

Thanks
Serge

Well, in FRA I didn't notice any major changes! More security, yes, but no closing down of areas.

btw.: This Thread belongs into Civil aviation, I suggested to move it!

since the question is about photograpy I'll let it stay in here. Certainly no need to move it to civil aviation.

And a warm welcome to you Cpn360!

Regards, SN-A330



I would rather be flying...

Cpn360,
No problems yesterday at EBBR (Brussels). From colleagues that went to Dusseldorf, no problem to. Obviously some Iraqi-US war related country-airports (UK, Spain) will have more severe control than you will experience in other countries. I heard that a few weeks ago, a German spotter was refused to use the different spottingviews at Manchester-airport (UK) by guards.

No problem at Ostend

That's because they have that new fence now (so nobody can jump over it).  Big grin

Bula!

LHR allows people to watch and photograph, they only closed the roof deck - Myrtle Avenue and the road through the maintenance areas are still used by spotters with little hassle.

MAN is great - the police have no problem with spotters, and ask them to be the polices 'eyes and ears' - there are several official and unofficial spots, and photography is possible from all of them!

The only thing that has chanced in BRU is that there is no photography allowed in Terminal B. Outside now problems.

Its not in Europe but the only problem that I've encountered was at Williams Gateway (around PHX). Maybe you heard also something about it. Big grin

BTW Welcome and enjoy



BRU a small airport in a big world.

I thank all of you who gave me a warm welcome and especially from my Belgian "neighbors".  Big grin

@ Airplanepics & Mhodgson : Is the deck reclosed or is it closed since 9/11...
My question was about 3/11, 911 days after 9/11...

Hmmm.... A.net got invaded by the Belgian???  Laugh out loud

Austrian time.....

I've been to MUC yesterday and I had no problem being at the airport fence with my ladder taking pics of aircraft...
About every 2 hrs a police car came by and checked what we're doing.

"no pictures from terminal B" (at BRU)??? I have had no problems. On the other hand I always remain low profile. Are you sure you are not confusing with the "no photography" signs as you go through security? This is only valid for the security area.

Cpn360: Unfortunately the deck has not reopened, which is a shame!
