No, thats not what I said, I'll try again for you, as you are a Mil ATCO, I'm a civil one at an airfield, I think you're trumped.
The approach did not need to be that low. The danger was clear, and therefore it was poor airmanship. The pilot had plenty of option, including going around. In fact I am blaming both, but you clearly can't understand that side of it, maybe thats why your licenses can't be transferred to Civil in the UK.
From the replies in this thread it just shows the attitude of modern society "I'm going to do what I want to do and no-one is going to stop me". Instead of wasting Police resources and time stopping people from going to such places, just erect legal notices along the lines of "If you are stupid enough to stand here and you are involved in an incident with an aircraft then you, your family and any one related to you can make no claim against any incident, you will receive no compensation as you were stupid enough to stand there in the first place"
Lets stop being a Nanny state and protecting these moronic individuals, take away their legal rights so their relations get no compensation (after all isn't that the way these days... "you can claim for that" ), it would help reduce our increasing population and would also help to cleanse the gene pool
By the way, why is that guy in the orange shirt waving at the aircraft, is he expecting to see the pilot wave back from that angle!!
