This throws up an absolute minefield, with a camera focused in one direction verses a pilots view of the overall field.

While these cameras have great benefits, it seems there could also be a downside.
In the situation above, it was a pilot onsite that mentioned to me about an aircraft landing in abhorrent conditions, so I screen captured for discussion purposes and posted it, with a de-identified aircraft type.

However you do raise a good point that they could be used for evil, however any authority would be hard pressed to achieve a successful conviction based on any of these images alone, unless there was a witness on-site. Lord Howe would be an interesting one in that regard because the height of those mountains is well known in reference to the minimas, and those 8 or so camera angles on-site wonít miss much.
