The operator in question is a very responsible individual and I have no doubt that everything was in accordance with safety and regs. If anybody has any issues with an operators flying, I'd rather it was addressed directly with the individual than on a public forum. Just my opinion.
Never mind the conjested area, The CAA says that as long as i am over 50m I can fly over people that don't even know I'm there. So they have obviously looked at this in depth and decided the risk is so small that it's not worth questioning
just so this doesn't go out the wrong way, the 50m rule is NOT a bubble, you have to be horizontally 50m away from people and property not under your control. That's the standard permission anyway. Once you gain congested areas OSC it is very different from person to person, as it depends on their kit and their risk assessment, some people even get it down to 5m.I do like your point in the post above though about making more about how hard it actually is to get these shots done legally, and especially with people like th BBC who are pretty strict with doing stuff by the book in my experience. I love hearing how my friends have managed to get certain shots in tough areas, its probably not interesting to everyone, but it may give people more appreciation to the work that goes into the shots and stop them just going out and flying over a city themselves to copy your shots.
I don't think it's ever been changed ... It's never said above ... It only changes for a crowd of >1000
