STL - parked at a nearby hotel, and walked onto airport property along the perimeter road. I was there for nearly 2 hours when the airport police finally showed up, questioned me politely, and told me to walk back out.
- on top of the Terminal B parking garage. A nice MassPort man came by and told me how the FAA restricts photography at airports. I thought about telling him how full of it he was....but to what end? So I paid my parking fee and left.
- same deal as STL
. Packed in along the perimeter road, took up a location on a hill overlooking the runway, when a nice Conneciticut State Trooper came by, and unlike the police at STL
, very abrubtly told me I was tresspassing, and to leave immediately. I then tried another location overlooking a different runway. Yep, you guessed it, the same trooper came by. Seems I was tresspassing again.
So what is it? Tresspassing? FAA regulation concerning phogotraphy? Are we somehow, by default, the new communist party? If it is an FAA regulation issue, somebody better tell the nice folks down in Charlotte, NC
to close their observation park, located on airport property. I don't want the FAA getting angry at them too. When you think of benign (spelling?) ways to spend your time, this has to be at the top of the list. We hurt nobody. As a matter of fact, I see myself as a public servant, showing the positive and colorful side of aviation.
Maybe it's time for Airliners to issue Press credentials to those who have acheived a certain level of publication here. Anybody have any thoughts on that?
