Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

Wouldn't go as far as to say it's illegal Sam but deffinately not reccomended and most likely un-insured, foolhardy in the extreme Suspect

Looks like a public park or school playing field
What's going on there may not be actually illegal. The flying looked precarious and unsafe, obviously not an experienced flyer.
The BMFA insurance (and most other public liability cover) is only valid provided permission to use a facility has first been given by the land owner or person in charge of the property.

So if they did not have permission AND there were an incedent or accident, the flyers would get the book thrown at them AND finish up paying for all damage and injury claims out of their own pocket. Not to mention trespassing on private property or breaking local authority by-laws.
Not to even think of the damage it would bring to the reputation of model flying.
The papers would have a ball making headlines about an idiot flying a model dangerously
Irresponsible perhaps is a better word

Hope it wasnt you !
