Copy that, I'm sure you'll have a great time, watch out for the landing gear if you're standing underneath the plane on approach, there's no ILS! Wink

I can't wait - I keep seeing the vids on flightlevel350.com but you can't imagine what its gonna be like.

Am I right in thinking that the KLM 747's and the Air France A340's go in on a daily basis?

Yeh they do go on a daily basis actually so you are very lucky!! Cool

Look at that post. It is an amazing place for aviation enthusiasts because of the approach the heavy aircraft have to make to reach the runway. Look at some of the pictures and videos in the post above Wink

After reading the link from Jolegg above, I realised that you have gotta get some shots of the beach when your coming into land leachus! It's incredable how long the planes are to the people below:

Hey just remember there is a very good reason why no one is lying on a particular part of the beach! You could well return sick of planes!
