Back to the list
Last spotting trip of this year led me to Amsterdam-Schiphol airport.
This time I travelled from Prague, but again with SkyEurope Airlines. The morning flight NE 2610 was operated with Boeing 737-700 OM-NGM, the nice crew was led by cpt. Crkva. We departed from rwy 24 of Prague airport, climbed flight level 40000 feet and after 75 minutes we safely landed on rwy 18C of Schiphol airport.
There are several possibilites at this airport to tak photos. After arrival I visited the famous observation terrace with wonderful view planes at the boarding gates. Most of my attention was given to KLM MD-11s, these three-holers are just beautiful.
After short excursion on arrivals hall, where I was impressed with frontal part of DC-9 fuselage placed in a shopwindow, I moved to the famous spotting-place at rwy 06/24 Kaagbaan. I saw many departing Boeings, Airbuses and Fokkers of all common types, and also some MD-11s. Only the weather could be better.
The time to departere was spent on a terrace again and then in a friendly café. The flight back home was operated with Boeing 737-700 OM-NGL led by cpt. Valusiak. Departure on time, and after take-off from rwy 24 left bank over Amsterdam and course was set to Prague. After fligth on flightlevel 39000 feet we descended for final approach, and we flew out of the clouds just above the treshold of runway 24. The landing was a bit longer, but safe again.
This trip was very nice, and I'm looking forward to visit Amsterdam again in March 2008.
