      Those are excellent, Eric...

      Is it also normal at that spot where this photo was taken that they wave back at ya ?

      I recall that when I was in AMS, standing and looking towards the taxiway for Polderbaan. I was talking to one of the spotters there and I asked him, So why is it mostly only the KLM ones that waves back. 14 out of 21 planes (all 14 waved back at us) Well thats because its KLM is planespotter-friendly and so on. That the airline told the pilots to wave back if possible and so on. Now I dont know if this is tru about the airline though. but nonethelss its awesome to us. Gosh I miss AMS.

      Thanks for the photos. Indeed magnifique Monsieur Smith.

          Aight guys thanks I'll give 'em a shot.

          @ Max: It was actually fairly normal although I don't know of any policy regarding waving, probably just doing it for fun. The hill that Founders Plaza sits on is really only like 150 feet max from the taxiway centerline if not closer so they are pretty in-your-face.

              Hi Eric - Yeah they should be okey for upload, but they both look a tad underexposed on my screen!

                Agree with Soren here. Nice motive, but underexposed for me.

                    Hi

                    Nice pictures, I agree with a little under exposed. We do not have a pilot waving policy at the company I work for yet, probably come out as something in the next set of amendments!!!

                    If I see photographers do sometimes see if there is anyhing I can do to help, ie not taxiing past flat out etc!!!! And I do often wave to spectators.

                      One man's "mood-dark" is another man's underexposed I guess. Honestly though IMO and on my monitor I'm seeing exactly what I saw down in Dallas.
