Plane spotters spark terrorist alert after being waved into RAF base and allowed to start taking photos | Mail Online A pair of helicopter spotters sparked a major terrorist alert after driving into an RAF base 'to have a look around'. Salesmen Max Awad, 30, and Addison Bridet, 29, were apparently waved through a military checkpoint and began taking photos of Chinooks and a Lynx. It was ten minutes before officers at RAF Odiham, Hampshire, realised there had been a breach and assembled an armed response team. Somebody is going to get a smacked botty over THAT one!!!
