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.

Pictures of the second most important hub in Germany, the Franz-Josef Strauss airport in the north-east of Munich, are joined in an extra gallery, while another gallery present airports in Europe and the last gallery is set up internationally for other other destinations. Aircraft pictures without a fixed preview are summarized in the variable gallery.

Structure of the galleries
1st 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 in javascript, which triggers the browser to display this warning. Furthermore, since 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 guidance to the photo.

If there is a separate page assigned to the image and not an automated display, the description contains a standard text of the shown image as well as the identification of the airplane(s) (if known). The 3 digit IATA code of the airline was chosen (inclusive link to the homepage of the society, so far available), type of aircraft, airplane registration, in brackets: Airline name written, nationality symbolizes by the flag, within flag the country name itself, behind it possibly the "name of the airplane", if known. Cross references regarding the airline or the type of aircraft are also given, also across the galleries. All data by best conscience however without guarantee on correctness.
