Security up in ABZ has tightened also.
I can park the car next to the spectators 'bus shelter' and can watch the BAA van pass keeping an eye on things.
A usual quick chat results in a 'not really allowed to park there' A 'not staying long' reply is usually OK.
I always do what they say and move on if asked. I can stay at the fence as long as I like without the car but no way am I paying the parking fee to walk and freeze by b****** off
Some security guys can go over the top but the majority of them know what we are doing. They are doing there job after all....keeping the British airports safe from the nutters that are going around.
