A Day at Frankfurt International
For me, no trip to Germany is complete without spending at least a few hours at the Frankfurt Airport. Besides the fact that it serves practically every one of the world's major airlines, it also offers some of the best areas to watch the action up close. I arrived into Frankfurt yesterday morning at about 7:00 AM and since my train to Berlin didn't leave until 6:00 PM, I had a long time to explore one of my favorite cities and take in some global aviation action. The viewing deck on top of Terminal 2 is closed for renovations, so I headed straight to Zeppelinheim, which is right at the end of runways 25L & 25C, the airport's main takeoff & departure runways. Unfortunately, the Qatar Airways A350 (one of the reasons I went to Germany this weekend) landed about 2 miles away on runway 25R. Oh well.... Here are some of the pictures I was able to take. All in all, it wasn't a bad way to spend a sunny Friday afternoon.
