Caution: rant follows.
The last few times I have been to CYEG spotting, the security has been somewhat bipolar in more than one respect.
From one visit to the next, some bother me, some don't. One week I sit near the north end of runway 30 on the dirt road, and a security truck pulls up inside the fence and watches me from a distance for some time, then leaves. The next week, same place, a security truck pulls up and tells me to leave... "authorized area only" even though there are no signs indicating as such.
Where you are "allowed" to go is also bizarre. The spot mentioned above I can't go sometimes, and the security guy tells me I can go to a spot along runway 02/20 which is just as close to the runway but it is okay because it is near the FBO's. Huh?
Now, you go to CYYC and never have any issues.
I suspect there must be certain security folks at CYEG that have a need to feel important? I just don't know but it sure is frustrating.
I feel better now.
