With weather improving this week, and forecasts looking good for the weekend, maybe it's a good idea to get together with all the AMS photographers this weekend (and maybe non AMS photographers).....We talked about doing this again a while ago, and this weekend might be a good time.....If enough people can make it that is.

Your are right Tim, the weather is really improving (as yesterday), so I also think it's time for a part X of this success.
My son was 1 year old last month so it's about time for him to start some serious go-to-airport-with-dad kind of thing.

Id love to, but I will be gone on Saturday (perhaps picking up the DAMN D60) And only a small chance I will be there on Sunday. But if I have the camera I will want to be at Schiphol as soon as possible, so who knows...

I'm game for saturday or sunday if the weather is decent.
Don't care much which, all the time in the world now that the company is dead and me out of a job (does mean I've little money to spend of course).
Weather today at AMS is pretty poor though. Foggy all day.

Yesterday and today saw great weather, and indeed that first flight. I was unfortunately stuck at the University
I'm not sure about the weather for saturday, but sunday is supposed to be decent. I'll be at 06/24 either saturday or sunday, and I'll drop by the spottersplace (or actually a bit to the right of it where the road turns), to see if anyone's there. You can all recognize me by my white lens I prefer shooting 06 approach shots, and always do that on a smal road leading to the runway lighting, if you see someone standing in a field while you drive on the Kruisweg, that's me!

Was over at AMS from about 10AM to 2PM. Low clouds, icy cold wind.
Not a lot to see either, nothing really interesting (except an Air Finland aircraft parked at the KLM painthangar, too far away to get a shot at it).

No, the areas outside the perimeter are not closed down, but they are kept under closer surveillance.
Last saturday there was a driveby by some airport or law enforcement vehicle about once every 30 minutes instead of once every 2 hours normal.
Most don't stop, and noone was turned away.
These people know what we're doing (and many do it themselves during lunchbreaks when the weather is better) and will leave spotters alone unless they're doing something illegal like climbing over fences.
