Plane Spotting: Schiphol Airport

Every time that I am back in the Netherlands I always find some time to do one of my favorite things in the world. Spotting. Schiphol is one of the most friendly airports in the world for this to do. There are several places around the airport perimeter (along runways, taxiways) and also there is the famous Schiphol Terrace. An observation deck that anyone can go out onto and have a look at the incoming and outgoing movements of the aircraft at the airport. Here are a collection of foto's I have taken over the past few years. At the end is also a tribute to Northwest Airlines, who had a very large presence at the airport, much like today's Delta Air Lines.

Is this really Schiphol Airport or Delta Land?
