On 1/fri/88 I was involved in aerial photography. We were in continuous contact with texarkana tower, reporting both altitude and position. Except for a time of about 1/2 hour, we were in the control zone. I tried to always remain 1000' above the obstacles. Someone on the ground thought we were too low and reported us to little rock FSS. I do not believe I was too low, however the interest of community relations, I will remain higher over the city.

Title: GA SMA ACCUSED OF LOW FLYING OVER POPULATED AREA.
Narrative: ON 1/FRI/88 I WAS INVOLVED IN AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY. WE WERE IN CONTINUOUS CONTACT WITH TEXARKANA TWR, RPTING BOTH ALT AND POS. EXCEPT FOR A TIME OF ABOUT 1/2 HR, WE WERE IN THE CTL ZONE. I TRIED TO ALWAYS REMAIN 1000' ABOVE THE OBSTACLES. SOMEONE ON THE GND THOUGHT WE WERE TOO LOW AND RPTED US TO LITTLE ROCK FSS. I DO NOT BELIEVE I WAS TOO LOW, HOWEVER THE INTEREST OF COMMUNITY RELATIONS, I WILL REMAIN HIGHER OVER THE CITY.
