Anyway, the latest star on Schiphol's runaways is the A380 from Emirates, which lands daily around 13.00 and take off to Dubai a couple of hours later.
This is a massive, spectacular machine, a proper feat of international engineering and when you stand under it while it lands, you can admire a wonderful human achievement and also feel a lot like Bono in Beautiful Day.
Below the tips from the man of the house:
Check this link 2 or 3 hrs before http://www.schiphol.nl/Reizigers/Vluchttijden/Aankomsttijden.htm
to see if the flight is on time or not. When you are close to Schiphol, better check this link (http://www.lvnl.nl/nl/
In any case the most eastern runway will always be used to receive the A380 (this is the Zwanenburgbaan).
For take off, check the link again (http://www.lvnl.nl/nl/
To check the codes of the runways see: http://www.airliners.nl/forum/
See? Proper nerds stuff!
