How a photographer captured photos of that Russian surveillance plane

Garfinkel of the Herald explains how he got into position to capture photos of that Russian jet that paid us a visit yesterday.

I ran out of the Herald's offices and onto Southie's D St. and got in my car and drove to East 1st st. I looked to my left as I was driving and there it was, flying over the old Edison plant on L St.

Very cool.

I wonder if it flew over the nuke sub bases in CT and R.I., and Portsmouth shipyard? There's also multiple airbases and a major early warning radar facility on Cape Cod, Barnstable.

Why bother flying over Groton

Why bother flying over Groton when you can see more by looking across from New London when they have the hangar doors open ? Of course they could also be signal trolling, but with the state of electronic miniaturization that could also be accomplished by packing the stuff in a car and driving around. I tend to think the modern use of spy boats and spy planes is more for P.R. purposes than any serious military advantage.
