News Worthy?

Fri Jul 21, 2006 6:35 am

Just interested in the 'offical' Answer to this.

I submitted a priority screening request for a photo of the V-22 at Fairford, I got an answer, nice and quick, saying no. The reason being it wasn't newsworthy. OK, fair enough, except the comment, tthat Farnbrough was, and fairford wasn't??????

I was looking through newly accepted photos yesterday, and was suprised to find that there was photos of several aircraft at Farnbrough, that had been at Fairford. One of them was a Typhoon, nothing special about it, and no real reason why it should, as far as I can see have had priority screening.

I am interested to know, same plane, earlier appearence, why is it newsworthy at one airfield, but not at another???????????

I think I am right in saying that the EVENT and not just the aircraft is the newsworthy thing about Farnborough 2006, so the V-22 from Farnborough would naturally be screened sooner.
