Plane and simple

Have your say

While feeling deep sympathy for the two plane spotters detained in Dubai, I must also express incredulity that with things being as they are in the Middle East at present, even two British enthusiasts could be as naïve as they appear to have been.

Some years ago I travelled extensively in the region and even back then, before the present furore, most travellers were more than circumspect about behaviour relating to anything with military implications.

Let us hope the men are 
released quickly and returned home safely.
