    Default Asian Aerospace

    Found an interesting excerpt from Sistic website:
    "* General shots is allowed. No head on shots of exhibits, without permission. No photography in West Cargo Apron (WCA) where large aircraft are displayed. Cameras and camera phones must be surrendered before entering WCA. "

    Would be interested to find out what they define as "General shots"...
    also would be interesting to see how they can enforce people to "ask" for permission to shoot exhibits head on.

    Lightbulb it can be enforced if ......

    I remembered the last time I visited Paya Lebar Airport(Military) when it was opened to the public. At the checkpoint, they will asked what lenses you have. Wide angle or short telephoto lenses are fine. If you have a long telephoto, they will want you to deposit it with them. There are some sensitive area/s which they do not want the public to photograph.

    While inside, we were advised not to photograph some part of the airport.
    So, if they want to enforce, they will deploy the necessary resources to ensure its enforceability.

    his company (xxx) not interested in the planes displayed this year

    RSAF open house(PLAB) and AA(Changi Exhibition Ctr) started banning 'big' cameras after 911 i think...

    even perimeter of the airport has tighten security... hard to get close to the fence with your camera loh

    seems like everyone is going on the 29th...
