Amsterdam Airport Schiphol 2018

Best spotting in Europe? Amsterdam Airport Schiphol definitely!

Location: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

Date: 20- 22 AUG 2018

Mission: Feel free and be awesome



Many amazing spotting points, places and options for all avgeeks. I spent two days of spotting close to the Polderbaan in August 2018. I came to Amsterdam by car because I always need a lot of equipment (tripods, lenses, DSLR and cameras). If I fly by the plane I pay extra money for checked equipment baggage every time. AMS is 900 km away from Prague (+/- 9 hours of drive). My father was with mi like co-driver and co-spotter. No more words needed.

Almost all photos was created by my father. He is absolutely one of the my best co-spotter ever. 🙂
