I was standing on the embankment along Hwy 281 under the approach lights taking photos when 2 aviation police cars rushed up and told me to leave because I looked suspicious and I wasn't allowed to take photos of aircraft from that spot.
I have also been run off by Dee Howard security for taking pictures from the road near their facilities. I was told by the rent-a-cop that it was illegal to take pictures of aircraft on federal property. ??????? The head rent-a-cop confirmed this. All the time this was going on, a group of employees out on break were yelling "He can take pictures from outside the fence, he just can't go inside with the camera." "Let him stay, he's just taking pictures." and other stuff....
Haven't been back to SAT since the incident with the aviation police.
