  • Obstruction?

    Hello everyone,
    kindly I would like an opinion about the two attached photos: must they be rejected for obstruction?
    The photos were taken at an airshow and obviously the aeroclubs advertised themselves.
    In the first photo there is the aeroclub flag hanging from the wing of the plane.
    In the second case there is some informative and advertising material (leaflets and brochures) of the aeroclub placed on the wing.
    Thank you very much in advance for your reply
    Bye
    Carlo

    To my knowledge - at Airshows, museums or aircraft on display - the restrictions and the strictness of the screeners lowers for things like this. Especially if in the photo the "obstruction" is not distracting or seems to ruin the shot. (Which I would not consider to be the case with yours - I feel they are okay)


    I have a few SIMILAIR examples of photos that passed without a problem - make sure you give context through a comment when uploading.

    1. Helmet on the wing: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10349701
    2. Equipment visible: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10317503
    3. Remove before flight obstruction: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10164985
    4. Stairs: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10555244
    5. Cleaner at the bottom (I could have removed it myself to be fair): https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10589164

      First will be a subjective decision. Usually it will depend on how avoidable the obstruction is. For permanent displays, usually it is not avoidable, so there is leeway given. In this case it looks like a temporary display, in which case there will be less leeway. If it's a new reg., there might still be some discretion available, but if it's not new, then less so. As I said, subjective, but hope that gives you an idea of the thought process.

      Second one is fine.
