Thanks for your comments:
I have to say that while you feel comparing a terminal to a radar screen is not a valid comparison, I cannot accept either that a departures board can be compared to a radar showing live traffic.
Everyone in their life has seen a departures board when flying, how many people have seen a radar screen of the London TMA?
I also fail to see how the interior of a tower is not the same as a radar unit......it's the same job, using a different tool. The Tower is visual control, using flightstrips and mark 1 eyeball, the radar controllers eyes are the tube, his control utilises strips and radar.
By saying one type of ATC shot, of the tower is appropriate but a radar shot is not is like saying that one type of ATC is somehow different to the other. I don't get why one is acceptable and the other is not.
I still stand by my comparison, if the inside of a terminal building with no aircraft visible is acceptable, why is a radar photo actually showing aircraft not?
Surely the fact that everyone has stated they find the pictures interesting, must mean they at least have some value and may be appreciated by a wider audience?
I would have hoped that the unique nature and rarity of the shots would encourage them to be looked at in a slightly different way.
As I have said though, I'm happy to live by the rules here, I have respect for the site and the team, if you don't want these sort of pictures, I can 100% live with that, but at the end of the day, why spend time uploading tower interiors and risk getting a badmotiv or baddouble when the boundaries of what is acceptable and what isn't are so blurry?
It's more like saying you'll take pictures of an A330-200 but not an A330-300, they are essentially the same, but different
Anyway, I appreciate the situation and we'll move on, I also appreciate all the comments and feedback.
