Spotting In AMS

Sun Aug 17, 2008 11:06 am

Hi all..

I would like to seek some advice with regards to spotting in AMS

I understand there are a few spots around the airport parameter that offers good spotting opportunities besides the Terrace. How easy is it to get to the areas via public transport?

Any locals and/or experienced spotters in AMS can give me some advice?
Is 2 days good enough for AMS?
All information really really appreciated.

Rgds,

www.schipholspotter.com also offers details on public transport at and around schiphol. When will you be coming? I have my holiday for the next two weeks, so if you are around then chances are I might be able to drive you around.

What a pity; that's exactly in the middle of my 3 weeks summerholiday, but unfortunetely I am on vaction in Corfu- Greece at that moment. 3 days later wouldn't be a problem.  Smile
The last week of my holiday gives me lots of free time to go to AMS .

Every hour on AMS is worth a visit, so your 3 days are not a waste of time.

I had a day trip to AMS last August for a day of spotting. I found http://www.schipholspotter.com/ very helpful although on the day I just spent my time at the viewing terrace and then visited the city centre for lunch

It was a good day actually and I wouldn't mind doing it again sometime
There's flying and then there's flying

Well, that should be no problem. They practically give them away these days. Just send me your E-mail and place of stay I will pick you up there. I do not have satellite navigation, so if your place is hard to find please go to an easy to find spot and I will collect you there. A train station or something else that is sign posted.
