Well there I was at Cargo Plaza (not the blocked off part) awaiting Wunala Dreaming's arrival, sitting in the car with the scanner tuned in on approach. I had just been sitting there for about 40 mins, no pictures, no cameras, nothing. As I'm hanging out, watching the usual B6 parade commence, a PAPD rmp passes by. My eyes meet with the officer's and he turns in, followed by 2 other PAPD rmp's. Now I'm blocked in. I get out of my car and approach the first office who asks what I'm doing. I tell him I'm just sitting watching the planes fly in. He asks if I'm taking pictures to which I respond no I'm only watching. He then tells me I'm in the approach path of the busiest airport in the world (no, really?) and asks for my license/reg. I hand him my id and he proceeds to ask to frisk me and search my car and trunk. A bit excessive, I think, but whatever I've got nothing to hide. We talk for a bit, he was stern but not rude, and as he was walking away, Wunala breaks over the buildings. He says go ahead, shoot it and go home. So that's what I did. Could have been better, could have been worse, but at the end of the day the right call was made. Safe tours to them.
