    if you guys want to shoot planes touching down in comfort, then head for T1. if you guys want to shoot the planes on final approach, then SAFRA Resort beach will be one good place. but bear in mind, there're no shelter there (i think so).
    SAFRA...do you guys mean the one at Tanah Merah??

    Terence is an aviation spotting guru in my eyes. It's very difficult to get photo's accepted at Airliners.net, and to have the number of photos he has there is outstanding. Great work Terence! Perhaps you could run a T1 tour and photo clinic sometime... Count me in if you do this.

    That's NSRCC.

    National Service Resort & Country Club
    10, Changi Coast Walk, Singapore 499739

    Best spot around there would probably the road leading to the NSRCC.
    Took cab there late last year for a few night stay @ the bungalow. The road leading to NSRCC actually at the landing path of either RW 02L or 02R.

    How to get to NSRCC:

    From ECP:
    1. Turn out at Exit 2A
    2. Pass Tanah Merah Country Club Garden Course
    3. Keep right, look for signboard (on the left)
    4. Turn right into Changi Coast Walk (This could be the road where aeroplanes fly right above you)

    Alternatively, there's a shuttle bus running thru & fro Tanah Merah MRT Station. Not sure about the frequency & timing though..

    Well, just you all know, NSRCC has been taken over by SAFYC, it is now called SAFYC Tanah Merah.Spotting there is only during Nov-April period, and only during low tides in order to be able to stand at the beach.But approaches there can be a little high though.Shuttle there is run by SAFYC.You can log on to www.safyc.org.sg for more details.Not very sure iof you have to be a member to get there though.If any of you intrested in getting ther, you can contact me coz I can bring you in as guest.

    http://www.esrcc.com.sg/home.html

    Recently saw the shuttle bus.. still NSRCC. Even the website still NSRCC and no news of it having name changed to SAFYC

    Well, apart from being a rare bird, I sat in it before many years back. The last time I sat in that plane was probably in 1995 (Provided it was a DC-10. Vaguely remember if it was A300 or DC-10)

    GA 744? Can see it at Soekarno-Hatta Airport Terminal 2, "F"


    BTW, now I no longer see Garuda with its DC-10 in Singapore. Probably due to low load factor. They now operate with Boeing 737 series, 6 frequency

    Go to Changi South where all the warehouses are, such as DHL, UPS, Sin Siang Choon, that is the landing and takeoff path of the aircraft. The best time to snap your plane is around 5pm - 7pm as this is the most busy time for the airport as arrival and departure take place.

    Changi South is ideal only if RW02 is in use, unfortunately it isn't at this time of the year. You could see aircraft departing from RW20 but they'd be way too high for any useful shots.

    I'd recommend the publicly accessible Changi Beach for approach shots onto RW20R. Can get good side on and quarter shots in both the mornings and afternoons.

    Thanks but there are many other local shooters here with many more shots than I have in a.net, many other good photographers these days.

    I've stopped posting there for a while now as I've gone off aviation photography recently.

    For those of you who might not know, the local commercial aviation enthusiasts hang out at www.ninervictor.com

    Can get some spotting and photography tips over there.
