Past week has been quite exhausting…, so I decided to relax by going spotting at Schiphol with my dad and a bud of mine.
After waking up at 6am, I made myself ready for a nice day of spotting. It was a bit cloudy, just a bit. But that didn’t stop me 😎.
At 7.15am we were on the road for a 1.5h trip to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. It was still cloudy, but hey… too late to back out now.
We first went to the Buitenveldertbaan (09-27) to watch some narrowbody departures and then we went to the Zwanenburgbaan (18C-36C) to watch the rest. It was a ton of fun, some aircraft took the long taxiway all around the runway so they taxied really near us.
Aaanywayy, I used my mums cam (a Linux) to capture the planes. Hope you enjoy the pictures :)
Let’s start off with a nice KLM 737-700 travelling to somewhere in Europe
An KLM ERJ-190 also travelling to somewhere in Europe
Nice little view of Schiphol, with a Silkway 747F on final in the background from Baku
A China Airlines a350-900 bound for Taipei climbing
A KLM 777-200ER bound for TNCB
Turkish Airlines new a350 departing to Istanbul, right after a KLM 737-700 departed to Istanbul
A Martinair Cargo 747-400F twice the age as me departing to Miami
An United 787-8 departing to Chicago O’Hare
Garuda Indonesia 77w taxiing around the runway (The first officer waved at me!!)
This is my personal favourite, one departing one on final (maybe I should’ve cropped it more, but I like it this way)
In the end it rained a little. So we went home after a few more aircraft. And for life just laughing at me more, ever single day they forecasted rain. Every day it was sunny, except… this day…
Oh well, still happy I went. Hope you enjoyed these pictures.
Are these JP quality? No, but I’m really happy on how these turned out because in my opinion I really improved on taking the picture!
Thanks for viewing
See ya! ✌
