Monday, should things go according to plan, will probably be one of the most significant events happening in the United States this year pertaining to civil aviation, with the A380 scheduled to hit both coasts for their first stateside visit. The only more newsworthy event this year as far as I can see is the potential 787 fanfare that will likely take place later in the year.
A couple of questions, then, for the screeners. First, even though this doesn't cleanly fit into the criteria for priority screening, I know certain other events have been granted special clearance. In my opinion this should, too. Who wants to look at JFK
A380 approach shots a week after the fact, what with all the other media outlets that will carry pictures of the event?
Second, this will be my first experience "shooting with the masses", and I'm envisioning dozens if not hundreds of photogs out with me at JFK
on Monday. There will be limited viewing angles, meaning that there will probably be a lot of submissions of pretty much the same exact angle. How do the "double" and "common" rules play into this scenario?
