Canada is known to be home to progressive and friendly people and they often come up with ideas that the rest of the world later follows. Consequently, while the TSA is depicting aviation photographers as creepy, potential terrorists, Canadians in Quebec are granting them rights to capture as many aviation photographs as they like. Therefore, recently, Jean-Lesage International Airport of Québec announced that it has teamed up with the Québec-based planespotting community YQB Aviation in order to install special panels around the airport to provide photographers with the ability to snap pictures from various angles.
Metal frames surround the holes to prevent wires from scratching the camera lens. The airport also provides photographers with the map of the 10 panels around the area.
Though I am not really interested in planespotting (VOMM is too far), I fully appreciate this. Who knows, maybe this idea might be implemented in every major airport in the future!
