Just wanted to let you know that we had a great day at AMS today, with a special visitor, mr Konstantin von Wedelstaedt from Frankfurt. Loads of great planes and superb weather made it a superb day. The shots will be on A.net in no time, looking at the lovely possibilities we had.
here is a group shot:

My thoughts exactly, Harm, in regards to Canon. Woo!
Glad to hear you guys had yet another successful day of spotting. I know I came home with a biatche of a sunburn on Saturday, all around my neck and face. Looks like it was just perfect in the Netherlands, though...

Tim's neck is thick enough even to hold all that Canon glass???
Good Dutch tradition [actually it's a Fries tradition, from nortern part of the Netherlands] is used to jump the canals: it's called fierljeppen. It's a sort of pole to jump over the canals. Given the fact that Konstantin is dry, that must mean the sun did a good job!
Joe, you may not believe this, but AMS spotters lost a great number of fabulous photo spots over the past 10 years . . .
Immigration officer: "What's the purpose of your visit to the USA?" Spotter: "Shooting airliners with my Canon!"

1. So great to see all that Canon glass, yes.
2. It's great also to see threads like this of others in our hobby having great times like this. Thought on other sides of the plane,t we can all relate and appreciate how good of a time we can have doing this.
3rd, and most importantly, Joe, that was the most blatant way to get hits I've ever seen! LOL. I love it.
Weitse, how old are you, if you don't mind my asking. You seem young, and I've always thought, maybe with your high caliber of photos, that you'd be much older.
