Seeing that the sofa is red.......
I think it was back in the late 70's / early 80's a photographer published a book of photographs of a red couch being put in all kind of situations and places. Indoors, outdoors, rooftops, etc. I wonder if this is for the next edition of that book.....

Quoting Planesailing (Reply 4): From what I remember reading once, they are sitting infront of a massive ditch, almost a canal between themselves and the runway.
True. there are some fences, but that's only at access roads with the runways. at some runways there are even big parking areas with a french fries stand. Most runways have dedicated spotting areas. Spotting at AMS is still a joy and nobody bothers you, unless of course you try to swimm across the ditch or climb a fence...
And today in the news comes the end of this. Schiphol is closing "illegal" spotting areas, such as the polderbaan, and only will allow three areas, Kaagbaan, the terrace (wich I would hardly call a spotters area) and the buitenveldertbaan.
Seems they have succumbed to the fear for terrorists, or so they say. http://www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl/news/?id=10810
