Spectators Balcony (Spotters Corner) If you're not a professional pilot but want to discuss issues about the job, this is the best place to loiter. You won't be moved on by 'security' and there'll be plenty of experts to answer any questions.

Just one small aside here: spotters/photographers of aircraft generally do not want people of any description in their shots. Tends to differentiate them from the "paparazzi"....!!
Very true, but for Security a camera is a camera! Paparazzi also tend to walk around in anoraks holding notebooks.

Hi Dave . . . I think you'll find I did no such thing as you have alluded to above . . . . . I have made no comment on the actions taken by security and the deletion of images and never will.

it's not my place to comment on how a contracted company conducts its business




In relation to the deleting of images I merely quoted open source reporting of the internet. It clearly states UK laws; the airport is private property.

Quick google . . . . .

Quote:
In the UK, the laws does not prevent photography from a public place. However, airports in the UK are private, either in full and/or on land which is considered private property.
Source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photog...ivate_property

See Legal restrictions on Private property.



The only reason I posted was to add balance and highlight that the incident took place on private property in an area clearly signed as restricted for photography. NOTE restricted not banned.

Thanks all

I was referring to the quote in your post:

That sounds to me like an acknowledgement that it was done without authority, but if I have misunderstood you, I apologise.
