Awesome shot.  It is getting harder here in parts of the USA to photograph planes.  I was at a major airport recently trying to photograph planes and government agents saw me and quickly came over and asked what I was doing.  They not so politely told me to leave.  Rather than risk being arrested I left.  So I commend you for getting this shot.

What he was doing was most likely illegal.

Next time ask him what law you are violating. A 'policy' or a request is not a law.

Hope you got his badge number and ID so you can follow up with his supervisors.

No I didn't get their badge numbers or names.  Frankly they were very intimidating dressed like military soldiers with massive rifles.  I was taken aback by it and was scared they would arrest me.  It was a horrible and unnerving experience to say the least - what started out to be a happy Saturday morning outing to the airport after breakfast.   I used to photograph planes from the airport in the 70's and 80's with no issues/problems at all.  Thanks for the advice Deardorff.

Well, first of all this was taken at a plane repair facility, so at part of the runway where these planes presumably go to get serviced.

I happened to be driving by and there was a hole in the chain mail fence, so ..

There were no guards or anything - this was a public street in the "countryside" or what passes for that here on tiny Malta.

And finally Malta is Malta. Quiet and still safe so far. Why not come over and take a few photos  :-)
