Geography Tucked away in a Waterschap Groot-Haarlemmermeer yard in a little village called Buitenkaag. Street address of the yard: Lisserdijk 5. Also visible from the Hoofdweg Oostzijde. This monster beacon managed to keep us busy for almost two hours, since it is surrounded by lots of waterways, freeways, and railways. We really had to fight our way there, with only the GPS to help us, but when we finally found it, the beacon site turned out to be quite easily reachable.
Procedures Locator for EHAM ILS 06. Often planes get a 'direct Charlie Hotel, cleared for the ILS 06' instruction after having been radar vectored to some point South-West of CH.
