I think there are some restrictions because the airport is half military...or is it Chania??? I cannot really recall but check it before making any attempts!

I recall both Chania and Iraklion being half military.

That's both true!

I have been at Heraklion and shot some pictures. I didn't get any trouble while I was at the tarmac. But on the other hand. There is a mountain at the approach route and Military police is driving around there looking for spotters (or spies)

I didn't get any trouble but be aware! A few people were kept in prison last year. 2 Dutch and 10 English I believe.
