Welcome to the spring meeet thread! Visiting the famous spotting place in AMS before its closed down is a necessity, so lets make up a date.

If we are not to meet on 07-08 April, when then? Later or sooner?

I don't mind whatever date you pick, as long as it is announced somewhat in advance so I can arrange days off. Yes, I'll be driving... though preferably not to a restaurant in Amsterdam unless it is somewhere on the outskirts.


p.s. Kaagbaan is with 4 A's.  Wink

Apparantly you did. The spot alongside the Kaagbaan will be turned into cargo apron and warehouses. The plans are to expand the (Martinair) cargo area all the way to the N201.

Hopefully I'll be there sometime around Apr. 10th, I have to get there before they close it up, and maybe get some more fries and mayo from the lunch truck.

The NH hotel is very nice and not too expensive. If you visit my site (www.schipholspotter.com, for both of you that did not know yet) you can find a map with hotels. The hotel is at #3, so close to the Kaagbaan threshold. In fact, in half an hours walk you could go to the official Kaagbaan spot, just 10 minutes for the final approach.

Me too. I have wheels.

What are the options thus far?

31 March/1 April

14/15 April

28/29 April. That gives the Dutch a chance to recover from you lot - Monday 30 April is a public holiday, Queen's Day  biggrin

Any time in April is OK, I'll probably be working as I work 2 out of 3 weekends but surely you'll be there for a while and I'll get a chance to drop by for a while before or after my shift.

Same for you I guess, SK601?
