Planespotters Allegedly Harassed by Authorities at Bradley International Airport

A group of Bradley International Airport plane spotters have complained to the ACLU of Connecticut about repeatedly being thrown off airport property and being told that what they're doing (taking pictures and recording tail numbers) is illegal.

The head of the Connecticut Airport Authority has responded by saying that the plane spotters are welcome to indulge in their hobby in public areas of the airport, but should remain out of restricted areas.

Well, that certainly makes it okay then.
