Boxing Day at Schiphol Airport

I spent Boxing Day at Schiphol this year. The weather was very mixed, which fortunately is not always a bad thing. Some of the results: 1. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8213/8315808928_ab8a06b165_b.jpg _MG_3937 by KeesPT , on Flickr 2. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8214/8314756031_af910d63e6_b.jpg _...

Schiphol 15-12-2012

Last Saturday the weather at Schiphol was very mixed, but Delta started to use the B777 on one of its daily flights, I finally managed to get a shot of the Emirates' monster at the Polderbaan and in the early part of the morning there was some nice light. So I enjoyed myself anyway. Sadly we're stil...

Schiphol sat 19-05-2012

Yesterday I spent at Schiphol and after a grey start of the day the weather improved and there was enough to see to stop me from getting bored.

Schiphol Thursday 03-04-2012

Probably one of my worst days at Schiphol. I had hoped for showers with sunshine in between, but the day started off with heavy fog and it didn't get much better. Having driven over there some eighty miles from Tilburg, I thought I might as well stay however and try to get a few shots 1. The day sta...

Re: Another 787 - JAL in Boston

The 787 is an aircraft with a different look, a bit futuristic and the nose (Boeings are always recognisable by their noses) doesn't look like anything Boeing at all to me. Unfortunately I just missed the ANA example at Frankfurt last week. Nice set of pictures Kenny and I'm probably not the only on...

Last week we had a little holiday in the Taunus in Germany and I took the opportunity to visit Frankfurt. Some very nice planes there which we don't see at Schiphol.

Last Saturday I spent a nice and sunny day at Düsseldorf. It's a very nice airport with fabulous facilities for aircraft spotters. There are two terraces, one on each end of the runway and both these locations offer good photo opportunities. A monorail train connects the two terraces and your 2,20 e...

Re: Schiphol Thursday 22th March

Hi Canon, If you visit Schiphol it would be a shame to limit yourself to the viewing area atop the terminal. The background alone would ruin most if not all of your shots. There are numerous places to go, the pictures in this post were taken at four different positions and only one of these required...

Schiphol Thursday 22th March

Last Thursday was a very nice and sunny day and my first day at Schiphol this year without a thick coat and gloves. No special aircraft apart from the ULS Cargo A300, but a very enjoyable day out nevertheless. The Qatar Cargo 777 left when the sun was already down so I processed it in B&W. 1 htt...

Re: Schiphol Airport

Hi Kenny,

You guessed right. It was a very pleasant and totally unexpected surprise to see two BA 747's and a single BA 777 land at Schiphol. The first 747 landed very early when the sun was just about to rise.
