Planespotters arrested in India

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a room overlooking an airport runway so you can note the planes arriving and taking off in your special notebook.

Two Britons, Stephen Hampton and Steven Ayres, were released on bail after being caught with binoculars and radios. Their crime? Planespotting.

They’ve been released on bail but can’t leave the country until this dreadful mess is cleared up.

In a very telling quote, Hampton’s sainted mother, Eileen, says that her boy, 46, photographs planes all over the world.

Do any of you guys planespot? Why?
