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.

Pretty cool set. How is spotting at Curacao? Do they have spotting locations and how are the authorities in regards to spotters?

Nice pictures EC, nearly everything you can get at Hato

To VH3D: Been there 3 weeks ago for a few hours. No problems with spotting and photographing from the Mirador-Spot. Shade and everything you need only a few steps away. But was sent away from the fence at the Kustvacht-Hangar really instantly. Guess because of the new MQ-9 Reaper drone recently deployed there. Other locations for spotting possible, but you will be fully exposed to the sun and no accomodations at all.
Regards
Tommy

Thanks for the replies guys!

I do not have much to add to the spotting observations of Tommy. My photo's were made from the observation point on the hill just above the terminal and by the fence to the left of the terminal. No problems wit security or police there.

Thanks TommyW and EC for the comments. This airport is on my bucket list for spotting. Hopefully next year I can visit and spend some time at the airport.
