Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Nice piccies, especially when one considers they were made in the dark... Image

Did/do you need to have a "toeschouwerskaartje" for photos like these or not? :wink:

For the 1st one yes, but that wasn't such a success.

Arrived at the Corendon Hotel around 21:00.
Had to wait inside for the show to start until 22:45 (live stream on a few large screens).
No seating arrangements.

Finally once the BFB was en-route we were taken to buses to a spot in-between the Tweeduizend El and Sloterweg.
Arrived there around 23:30.
Waited until 01:00 until the aircraft was visible from there.
Took the first shot and left, as it took forever for the aircraft to move towards the Sloterweg.

So went back to the car and took the 2nd shot from the Hoofdvaart (Polderbaan side, other side was closed).
After that I went home to sleep.

The a/c did move very close to the spot Corendon arranged for the spectators later, but there was not much light there so I am happy that I did what I did to get these pictures.
In retrospect: I should have moved outside the fences with the transport (P3, the bridge across the A4, other side of the Hoofdvaart) for pictures. Better than all that waiting. ;)

Equipment used: Canon 5D Mk IV & 70-200 F2.8 @ ISO 1600, and low shutter speed + F2.8 with a tripod.

Other info:
You can park for free without Corendon Ticket at P4 (they only check when you enter the bus).
There you receive a wristband.
Inside the hotel a ticket for the bus was issued, and checked if you have one when boarding the bus.
At the Corendon spectators site you were again checked for your wristband.

For coming friday I expect a similar setup and they will most likely place the spectators on the bridge across the A9 (Sloterweg).
Not sure if you can enter the Sloterweg walking, as traffic people are at the intersection of Sloterweg & Schipholweg and the roads remain closed. Not sure if this applies to pedestrians and cyclists.

The Corendon 747 can be walked up to really nicely from the Sloterweg. There is even a special photography location made.
From the A9 and A4 you can also nicely see the aircraft. An impression:
