How close to the runway are you? How much zoom is required for a full frame shot? Would not mind to go there some day. :D

From the AVP it's about 250m (looks closer!) to 06L/24R and about another 400m to 06R/24L

I've been using a 18-200mm (28-320 on digital), and this is fine for the aircraft taxiing along Alpha. To get decent landing / takoff shot I use my 100-400 (160 - 640 on digital) lens. The 100-400 is usless on aircraft taxiing as all you get is photgraphs showing you what the pilots name badge says!!!!

On thew southside I use the 18-200 all the time!

Take a cookie rom the Jar!!!! :D

When I was playing with the saturation, I accidently moved the HUE slider, and thought...that looks good!!!!!
