Hi Guys,

I've amended the posting guidlines to include these paragraphs:

The reason for these ammendments is simple, it has been pointed out to me that certain undesirable groups & individuals watch this and other public message boards for details in advance of foreign military aircraft arrivals at both Baldonnel and other Irish airports.  

We all know what has happened in the past and I'm sure that none of us want this to happen in the future, especially if it transpires that the information was obtained from this message board.

I think that it's safe to say that the Air Corps / Defence Forces monitor this and the other message boards / websites so please don't give them a reason to shut us down.

Please understand that this is NOT censorship, everyone posting on this board to some extent or other has a positive interest in the Air Corps, and I'm just looking out for the interests of the Air Corps / Defence Forces, the public and this message board.

There is no problem with saying that an aircraft was at Baldonnel or even with sending in pictures of the aircraft at Baldonnel, it's all just a matter of using some common sense.

I'll investigate the possibility of having a members only section if the demand is there.

If you have any questions or comments, or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact me, thanks for your understanding.


Regards,

Frank.
