Greetings ...

Say I'm approached by the authorities (a) at a terminal; and/or (b) in the field at a designated spotter site. I show my I.D. and all and they still insist that I "cease and desist" from taking pictures.

As we’re advised not to confront these people … what are our realistic response options. Is it a waste of time to state our case calmly. Should we stay around and simple observe aircraft?

What if they request that we leave the area entirely? At a terminal it's easy to just go to a different part of the terminal. At an external spotter site … relocating entirely would be more inconvenient especially since non-drivers like moi don’t have a car to hop into to drive off to another site.
