    You might want to seek clarifications with the security personnel there when in doubt. AFAIK photography should be allowed. But in certain areas.

    The open house date should be 1,2,3 sept at Paya Lebar Airbase.

    Its silly, i m previously from PLAB and there is absolutely nothing to aim at even with a 1000mm lens (if there is one). Everything is all block by trees and gates.

    I guess the smart alec never try using a 500mm lens and scout what can he can shoot from the area opened to public

    they explicitly said "telephoto lenses that are 500mm and beyond will be prohibited."....didn't state the use of teleconverters.
    eat. drink. shoot

    Yes 500 mm not allowed. I went down to the open house today and the security were checking the zoom lenses of many people. If you bring it in they will safekeep for you till you leave.





    enjoy yourself there

    They did not check my lens today and I managed to bring in a 300mm + 1.4x and 2x TCs

    Advisory, if you are there for the aerial display, its better to go for the afternoon show, so the sun is behind you.

    i think it is in general a good idea to go there in the late afternoon, say 4-5pm reaching there. all back lighting in the morning, for whatever you want to shoot.

    So 200mm + 1.4X TC can make it base on your experience?

    200mm+1.4TC can be used.....

    but I would strongly recommend a 300+1.4TC/400mm for the fighter takeoffs and landing.
