Re: Published Aviation Photograper

Does it really matter, I would say in the UK there are probably zero full time aviation photographers making any serious money.

Re: State of the viewing area!

I am sure the police have better things to do and might get annoyed at people calling them for litter. This in turn could back fire when they get sick of the calls and ask the MOD to close the area.
No easy answer really other than pic it up if you see it.
