Hi everyone,

I'm planning to go again for a daytrip to AMS next weekend if the weather is good. Just wondering if any A.net photographers will be there.

-Joge

Jorgos,

I'm a "sunshine only" photographer and weather doesn't look too good.
So, you probably won't see me.

Just checked the weather forecast... Like you said, it doesn't look too promising. However, I'm optimistic and will see what will happen. It may still change.  Smile

Yup... If the weather is decent, I'll probably go to the airport and have a look.
Can't go on saturday, but sunday perhaps, if weather permits it...
Cheers,
Eduard

Btw, I'm only free on Sunday. You plan to be at AMS Saturday and Sunday, or just on 1 day?

KAs.

OK. If you know what time and place, let me know. Then I'll see if I can make it (if the weather is good).

Hi Jorgos,

Nice to see you're going to AMS. I myself wanted to go there last Sunday, but since weather wasn't too good and I just returned from Toulouse, I decided to stay home.

However, I'm planning to go there myself again when weather allows. I remember last year, when I went to AMS on the 23rd of March, weather was extremely good and it was really warm already. So I'm keeping my equipment standby every weekend  Wink/being sarcastic

Anyway, now that you've started this topic, maybe somebody over here could tell me something about new photo opportunities since the new RWY was introduced. I'm pretty much aware of 'old' spots, but how about new spots, and especially how to get there by car (e.g. the TWY bridge over the highway,...)?

Enjoy your visit Jorgos. Maybe we'll see each other again soon...

Ivan

Ivan,
Go to http://www.leaseplan.nl/routeplanner.htm and look for the following road: Vijfhuizerweg in Hoofddorp. You'll see where to go!!
Cheers,

I've never been to that spot, only the place where the aircraft taxi above the road (I believe it's the A5?).

To go to the spot Eduard said, do you first have to be on the N205 and then make a right?

The map I indicated does not show a 'spot', it just shows the surroundings. Just driving directions. Any of the roads around the runway provide a view of it.

I will display the map of the surroundings of the "Polderbaan" here. The red dots are spotting places. I am not very good at reading maps, so please correct me if I am wrong:



1) This is a nice place where you can have a good view of rotations. I know that you can get there by car. There is a small roundabout at the end and a fence where you can park your car.

2) I don't know if you can get there by car

3) I don't know if you can get there by car

4) This is the place where you can see the planes crossing the road at only 15 meters distance. You can get the pilots waving at you. There is not much parking space and it is all mud.

The highway leading to the "Rottepolderplein" is the A9.

Again, please correct me if I am wrong !

Roel.

Just received an email from Jorgos aka Joge. He has a serious problem putting new messages on the forum, so he asked me to write down this reply:

He asks when the new RWY (i.e. 18L/36R) is being used, and whether ATC 'puts' a specific kind of arrivals/departures over there, e.g. Asian arrivals.

Greetings,
Ivan

PS: just send me an email Jorgos if the question I put above isn't exactly what you wanted to ask  Wink/being sarcastic

Send me an email if you want more detailed info...
