Remarks: 1400 HQ - (+52° 18' 29.69", +4° 45' 55.54") One of the best observation decks in Europe. Magnificent view, with easily accessable restaurants, now with Fokker 100 (PH-OFE) just in front of the entrance. Enjoy your spotting!
Remarks: Sun almost going down behind my back and the Schiphol Terminal building. Schiphol, one of the most spotter friendliest airports around the globe. Lots of traffic, great variaty in aircraft types and airlines. All spotters should at least visit it once in their lives.
Remarks: Watching the watcher at Gate E08 as DL259 (N8456NW) is prepared for the flight to Minneapolis-St.Paul. Retrospectively dedicated, in honour of his birthday on this very same day, to my good friend Ian Chantler (see next in series... Click Here).
Remarks: View at the E gate with some ramp activity as Nahanni National Park is being loaded for her next trip. The light is great at this time of day: with the sun not yet entirely set and the lamps already ignited.
Remarks: Due to the unbelievable warm weather that weekend it was very busy alongside the famous cycling path at the Polderbaan. Note the Antonov 124 on finals.
