I was looking at the BAA website for details of the 60th Anniversary of Heathrow and stumbled across this page:

Taking film and photography at our airports

We are happy to accept requests for filming or photography at our airports. However various conditions will apply.

If you wish to take photographs, video or film in or around our airports perimeters, you will need to contact the airport concerned for further information and permission. Please email the relevant airport below:


Has anyone ever tried this? I wonder what the response would be and what the 'various conditions' might be?

Quoting Sean377 (Thread starter):

What an absolute load of bollocks!! They need to make it clear that this would be within the perimeter fence. Whoever wrote this did so because they can. There are countless people around LHR, for example, and LGW for that matter with cameras at any point in time - I bet none of them EVER emailed for permission.

So on the day the final Concorde landed, everyone there to see it (and by all counts you couldn't move!) had emailed for permission to take pictures? There are over 29,000 picutre in the database at LHR alone, the poor guy replying to peoples emails must be worked to the bone.

BAA - bah!  sarcastic

Heck, we've been worried about being moved on all this time, when all we had to do was send an email and we could've gotten airside!

BAA - bah indeed! (I wonder if the Spanish will be any more receptive?).

Sean,

they cannot be any more anti-enthusiast than BAA. Any shareholders who are enthusiasts should sell just to get the message across.
