Just returned from a few days at AMS (will post photos later) and the extensive Viewing Terrace has been cut back to give views of part Pier C, all of D and part of E and 3 runways. It still offers views of most movements, but more difficult to get the sun behind you for photos. It is still free to enter. :)

Thinking of popping over myself very soon, but is the viewing area only available once you have passed through passport control ?

No, it is landside. The "Panorama Terrace" is accessible from departure area 2. There are restaurant/toilets before you go outside. Also F100 PH-OFE is displayed up there.

Can you access it without going through security?

The UK has been in similar discussions to introduce pre clearence at UK airports. I'm guessing with the UK pretty much in Donald Trump's pocket these days, there's likely to be no change here.

Challenging times ahead.

I'm assuming the pilot knew nothing prior to the touchdown. A very skillful landing indeed. True dedication. #BE1284

Just passed through AMS on my way to LCY.
Security has been fitted with 3D luggage scanners meaning you do need to remove anything from your hand luggage - what a joy!
Just place your bag in the tray along with your bits from your pockets and that's it! Then move through the 3D body scanners and you're done!
There was no waiting time for the whole of security and it took me exactly 1 minute to get through, very impressed.

they initially trialled them on the fast track lane, and rolled them out to other lanes i think late last year. it's very much like TSAPre in the US, just leave everything in the bag which makes things much easier. There has been one on trial at LHR T2 for a while and I think they are now intending to roll them out to all terminals in the next year or so.

Unfortunately I don't share your optimism regarding 3D scanners.
