Thanks Gietje!! From which Spot you read them?

Anyone for a decent Spot for a nice overview on the ramp in the harbour from where you can see them and read them?

I could read 3 out of 5 serials from accross the water (11-20370, 11-20397 and 05-07010) but 2 Apaches are parked too close to the containers to reveal their numbers

For those who want to visit the port for 3CAB movements please find attached the overview based on the activities today:

spot 1: sneak peak through first gate of Broekman (storage area)
spot 2: the best spot in the morning with free view on approach, landing site and storage site (top side tails only due to wall)
spot 3. the best spot in the (late) afternoon with free view on approach
spot 4: same as 3 but a little higher in approach

Thanks everyone for updates about these choppers.

Is there a view on the main apron from the other side of the Maas? Like Speedwellstraat or perhaps the Euromast, looking over the containers?

The Euromast is about 2 km's away from where they are parked. A challenge i would say.
