Frankfurt on Main
the Rhine-Main-Airport, the international hub in Germany
Photos and views of flight operations from Frankfurt on Main Airport,
the most important international German hub located between Frankfurt and Rüsselsheim.
In addition to some aerial views, this gallery shows pictures of the airlines,
from the prop airliner to the wide-body jet, from all continents,
which fly to Frankfurt or had it as their destination.
Since the oldest pictures date from 1987, some historical jewels can be found in the pictures.
You can marvel at planes that are not any longer in scheduled service already for a long time.
Where can you still see a flying DC-8 or a Lockheed Tristar today?
Not to mention some airlines that have over the intervening years ceased operating and
have disappeared from the market, such as the Brazilian companies Vasp or Varig or
the legendary Pan Am or TWA (Trans World Airlines).
Other airlines are no longer flying independently like United or Continental.
Over the years, the design of many airlines has changed, enjoy aircraft in perhaps unusual colors.
The Rhine-Main Airport, the most frequented, international hub in Germany is located
in the southwest of Frankfurt on Main. In addition to the banking metropolis of Frankfurt,
there are other major cities in the immediate vicinity of the airport, such as Wiesbaden,
Offenbach, Hanau, Darmstadt or Mainz. Due to the extremely good transport connections count
Giessen, Aschaffenburg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen as well to the closer catchment area.
Directly northeast of the airport is Frankfurt junction, the freeway junction with the highest
traffic density in Germany. The airport is connected to the rail network by two train stations.
The suburban railway, called S-Bahn, takes over the distribution from the regional train station
in local traffic in the Frankfurt area. Long-distance transport is connected to the
German high-speed railway network and has a stop on the Cologne / Bonn - Frankfurt line.
From the train station, passengers reach without changing the train with short travel times
the Ruhr area (Düsseldorf, Essen, Dortmund, ...), Mannheim, Stuttgart, Karlsruhe and
further to Freiburg and Basel, or to Würzburg and further to Nuremberg and Munich.
The aircrafts shown in this gallery are sorted according to constructor:
||A300 A310 A319 A320 A321 A330 A340|
||707 727 737 747 747SP 757 767 777|

, are joined in an extra gallery, while another gallery present airports in
and the last gallery is set up

Aircraft pictures without a fixed preview are summarized in the
Structure of the galleries
The fixed galleries: the control shows all compressed photos in an overview.
These photos are fixed in their position, immediately visible, but they need loading time before
they are fully loaded and visible on the intended place on the screen.
2nd The variable gallery:
almost no loading time. The compressed photos are loading on demand by positioning
your mouse over the image number in the overview and the preview is shown together with a short
description. By clicking on the image number you get the enlargement as well as all details.
No photo gallery? Worth knowing about technology and program
If your operating system doesn’t build the photo gallery, but instead displays a warning that
restricts the display of active content, allow the blocked risk. The navigation, the selection
menus of the photo gallery as well as the control of the gallery pages are completely written
version 3.0 the entire screen is designed in container technology with a maximum of 5 areas,
which are set visible or kept hidden depending on the screen width. Same width also determines
how many shots can be shown in a row and automatically adjusts to it when you refresh the screen,
similar to your Windows Explorer. Due to the variable structure of the gallery, unfortunately,
no headings can be given any longer, which area will be displayed next.
The photo gallery itself as one on the 5 subsections is displayed with dynpro subscreen
technology, means in the screen encircled container 2 other containers are connected in the top
left position. One of these sub-container shows as transparent background image
several Lufthansa planes at Terminal A;
the other container contains the text. The wallpaper in the background is fixed with
100% x-axis and 100% y-axis and
3800 pixels, the text container calculates its depth itself. Depending to your screen
configuration, one container is displayed deeper than the other, so there it at the bottom an
overpowering beyond the edge of one of the containers. In normal cases the wallpaper should
finish deeper than the text.
Some patience, please note
The pictures of the photo gallery are extremely compressed to 165 * 110 pixels,
thus very fuzzy, but this is the intention. By clicking the frame you will get the actual size
with an image resolution of 2250 * 1500 pixels and the detailed data to the picture.
You can click the graphics right away, the second screen will open, but it may be that
your Internet browser will load all the photos in the gallery before the single photo
is activated in the zoom. Also note that your computer may issue a warning about active
elements in the background. Without activation and during charging, the zoom screen
remains black, which is not a program error, it is just the background color.
Please be patient. How the photo description is structured and which possibilities
you have in operating the system, is shortly summarized in the
to the photo.
