    02C is 4000 metres while 02L is 3260 metres.... so my guess is 02C. Which is sad, cos I work in Changi North, just beside the threshold of 02L.
    which is the T1 viewing area facing, 02C and D2L ?

    Ok, I've no idea which RW gonna be in use for A380 landing tomorrow. But if i'm not wrong, F31 is viewable from the T2 viewing mall.

    Seasoed WSSS Spotter please confirm if the black windows are the Viewing Mall's windows:

    Gate F31:



    The black windows:



    F31



    If those windows are the viewing mall's, then for those not trying to catch the landing shots can 'camp' at T2 viewing mall for the plane to dock.

    *Hope those pics are enough for illustration*

    I think most seasoned SIN spotters dont even bother to go to t2 viewing mall.anyway..it quite a good place to see the A380 up close if what rinaldi provided has been correct.

    the T2 viewin mall is quite pathetic.. think it'll be quite disappointing to spot planes from there.

    my guess on the runway... 20C ... i just hope the police won't be overzealous tml and chase pple away from coastal road area...

    no..they won't chase you away...they'll detain you if they see you holding a camera...I know a few spotters who kena that before..don go there ...itsa high security area..besides..A380 coming so sure tighten up security...

    It is absoloutely pathetic. But I guess that's the best place to spot the plane if there's no confirmed runway usage for tomorrow.

    Well, could be 20C or 02C.

    Then again, who knows they change it for tomorrow to 02L or 20L

    Most probably I'll be going, provided no rain tomorrow morning....and can wake up

    Do we need exposure compensation when taking pics through the dark tinted glass of the T2 viewing mall?

    Damien, you confirm going ah? Help me take some pics cos you know I can't.

    Rinaldi is correct, that's F31 in front of the viewing mall... It's on the right hand side, so I'm not sure if the completed viewing mall encompassed it. I know it's been shrunk. Damien can confirm that info though.

    Hey, Damien, if I'm down at the apron, I'll give you a call and you shoot some shots of me and the ugly brute ok?

    if change to 02L/20R then we LL lor haha...
    hmmm just a thought, if it lands on 20R, it'll prob have to cross that bridge across the road over to gate F.. imagine the sight of driving towrds the airport and seeing the A380 overhead!!

    police will really detain pple taking pics along coastal road??!!
