AMS Mini-Meet -- Part Deux

Mon May 10, 2004 4:03 am

So as some of you may know today was our special AMS mini-meet.

I was there ofcourse, together with AviationFreak and we had a fellow Italian A.nutter here for the weekend to spot with us from the observation deck. So it really was a Mini-Mini-Mini meet.  Smile

The best pictures I took will be posted later on, including a group photo.

Also, I would like to take this oppurtunity to thanks to Sander and Alberto for one GREAT day at AMS and I look forward to any next meetings. Maybe the big AMS meet in September? Smile/happy/getting dizzy Big thumbs up

Thanks,

Kas

Thanks for the kind words Kas.

I saw RG coming in pretty delayed when I was enjoying my quarter pounder menu at 06-24. And it wasn't the usual 772 but the MD-11. I've heard this change is permanent.

There was a Corsair 747 sitting at c-pier. Anyone knows what it was doing here. I think it was leased by MP because we saw they were loading MP containers into the a/c. But if I recall correctly it had a Dutchbird flightnumber.

A very nice surprise was the Syrian 747SP Saturday. Sorry Kas.  Big grin

Thank you both for the great spotting weekend.

I'm working on an big AMS meet. I'll post a thread to find out if there is any interest for such a meeting soon.

Sounds like you had fun, similar to our LHR mini meet we had 4 people for about 5 hours and then others turned up and we had to go! Always the way hahaha  Big grin.

Thanks Dave  Big thumbs up

Hi people,
sorry for the delay. I spent 2 wonderful days spotting in Ams as sure i couldn't have done it in Milan, without going in problems with police. I had 2 surprises: one that the entry its free and the other that there wasn't any police control like in Fra. I would like to thanx Sander and Kas for the time spent with me.
Im trying to uploading my photos on Airliner but the most going on jetphotos, better that nothing.
Regards
Alberto
