Yep, some more photos again from AMS. This time with my new lense since my old lense has gone death. Not quite sure wether this lense is an improvement though. For anything close by it does miracles. Unfortunately for something a bit far away the image tends to be very soft, blurry even. Even my old lense was better at long range, even though it cost only a third of the new one. Still, a few interesting planes from a absolutely freezing airport. Temperature was +3 degrees but with the wind it felt like -7. Very clear though with sun throughout the day. For the AMS meet next week, the weather is expected to remain much the same as it has been. Dry but cold. http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-philc-IMG_6442.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-phlxj-IMG_6490.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-phmci-IMG_6432.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-tcoal-IMG_6426.JPG http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-tffij-IMG_6518.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-b18203-IMG_6741.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-n806nw-IMG_6764.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-phaoa-IMG_6735.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-phkch-IMG_6717.jpg http://www.schipholspotter.com/600400/20060128/pjgttogb-IMG_6637.jpg

Sure why not, right click and save as. In a few days it will probably find its way to JP.net at 1024x768 or 1024x683. Have not decided yet how to crop it.

Only 3? Had expected more. Perhaps it is time to resurrect the AMS "meet" thread again? Would like to know at what time(s) I am expected to pick you all up.

I kept reseurecting the AMS meet thread, but it didn't really prompt anymore intrest. Myself and Dc10fan (If he's still planning on coming to spot/photo), arrive at 09:15 on LS201. Dont worry - myself and Paul are planning on coming back in August, £33, it would be rude not to!

Is that the famous KLM swan ??? I wonder what he's saying now as he floats around the Schipol periphery ? "Oh I dunno, one minute your face is plastered all over the side of planes travelling the globe, press conferences, photo shoots, cocktail parties and all the birds you could want. The next minute, nobody wants to know...." :D

Actually, this swan seemed to be a tad too young to be the KLM swan. However, KLM has announced they intend to expand 10% over the next few years so perhaps in a few years this will be a real KLM swan. :D
