I would like to thank everyone on the forums for the help throughout the years and also a thank you to ALL the crew especially the screeners who accepted my shot.
I got my first Mag cover and I'm over the moon and would like to share it with everyone.
Thanks you guys.

PS a special thank you to my friend Chris Griffiths (StealthZ) who helped me with my photography during this last year cheers Chris.

Great shot mate.
Find it rather surprising though that a mag which is advocating clamping down on the very people it uses for its photos.
Well done

Congratulations Alan and thankyou for the kind words.

The Perimeter Security cover story is no real cause for alarm, indeed reading between the lines(and I have read the article) if airports adopted some of the ideas in the article things would be easier for the enthusiast community. The article is fairly damning of most the worlds major airports. If real proactive and technologically advanced perimeter security practises were adopted there would be less need for the reactive, misinformed and often unpleasant encounters with airport "rentacops" and local law enforcement.



If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
