Jwenting, the point is most local governments have NOT outlawed aviation photography. Whenever we're hassled, we're told it was the Federal Government, FAA, TSA, etc. The witch here @ CLL says that the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT outlawed photography, not the local airport. Since Texas A&M University runs the airport, I spoke with the head of the University police about this. He said that TAMU has not created a policy to prohibit photography.
Airplanenut, I'm sorry but I deleted the letter a few weeks ago when I was cleaning up my hard drive. All it basically said that I had been informed by the local airport officials that the Feds had outlawed all photography @ airports and I was seeking proof one way or the other.
This is the address I sent it to. Took about 6 weeks for a reply. Must be the normal length of time for a bureaucratic organization to write a letter.
