Great shot mate.
Find it rather surprising though that a mag which is advocating clamping down on the very people it uses for its photos.
Well done

Congratulations Alan and thankyou for the kind words.

The Perimeter Security cover story is no real cause for alarm, indeed reading between the lines(and I have read the article) if airports adopted some of the ideas in the article things would be easier for the enthusiast community. The article is fairly damning of most the worlds major airports. If real proactive and technologically advanced perimeter security practises were adopted there would be less need for the reactive, misinformed and often unpleasant encounters with airport "rentacops" and local law enforcement.

Cheers
