They are military and most people here are civil. It is not a new story!

Pretty sad, but like already metioned it military. I could care less about military photography.

Just my few cents.

They were stupid, got onto a military base without permission carrying documents telling how to avoid patrols.

You know what makes this post funny....

I am over on the non-aviation forum getting chewed out because I apparently am not thinking innocent before guilty with that scum that just had extradition refused in England.

Here you guys are condemming these tourists before the case is heard, A case that allready had several charges either lessened or thrown out alltogether.

You're quite right!
My guess is that some over zealous Greec officials "screwed" them, after having read their own stories in a Dutch Aviation magazine. If you know the details you'll be amazed as what happened to them.

I know the details. These guys were caught redhanded, not arrested on vague hints and allegations after something was done on the other side of the world.

Had they taken care to check the law and use some common sense they'd be happy and free.
