A wooden bridge gives access to the beacon site.

OA is nicely tucked away. Two canals and a line of trees provide privacy.

On the other side is a larger canal. You can see the last houses of Assendelft. They get nearly continuous jet traffic at 2000 ft altitude, from the left (North) to the right (the beacon is just to the right of this dike road).

The weather station is positioned a hundred meters from OA. It stands more to the South, in the middle of the meadows.

Viewed from the West. The scouting building is only fifty meters away. If you memorize this scene, the house, the trees, the dike, the bridge, you can quite easily spot the OA beacon from the air when your plane turns South to intercept the ILS for Schiphol 18C.
