Ok, Mr. Sarcastic and Junior .
What I mean to ask is how do they keep it on the stand without it falling off. It looks like the first spit would make it topple over. And what kind of lights are in the engine, Flourescent, Neon, Xenon,????

Visit the website, it's technik-museum.de
The site is in English too and it shows a history about how they landed the 742 in Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden, took it apart, transported it over the rhine river to Speyer, and how they did rebuild it there.
There also is a similar story about the Concorde F-BVFB which went to their Sinsheim-exhibition.
They offer some other quite interesting planes, Antonov22, Dassault Mirage, Tupolew144...always worth a visit...
BTW, the 742 is open, You can enter the cabin, walk around, they removed many walls, You really see some detailled technical stuff. The cockpit can be sseen, they even put a platform on the left wing...
Search the database for LH 747-200 D-ABYM, eventually in the preserved/museum or what it's called category.
