Remarks: A meeting of JP photographers on the South Side mound from left to right,Ronald Vermeulen,Teun Sans Dutch Aviation Martin Robson and Kevin Rowett LBA photo by Ian Chantler Global,can't understand the Dutch guys interest in this aircraft?
Remarks: Well it ain't St Maarten thats for sure.. This is Moss Lane (or Joe's Field) - the threshold of 23R is just off to the left. The mounds are from recent construction work that give great views - I'm not sure if its private or not but no one seems to mind. The crowd were there for a DC8 that was holding at 23R for the Dash 8 - I think the dog is called "Rocky" - he's a boxer :-). Anybody recognise themselves?
Remarks: This spot is known as "Joe's field" it offers great landing shots when using 23right and after 12 o,clock when 23left closes for takeoffs, good line up shots off 23 right the sun is good in this position till around 1500 hours
