I believe they are blue lights.

I may be mistaken though...

Good use of a starburst filter Torsten!!!

As for how they got it onto the stand, I believe they lifted it very slowly and very carefully with very large cranes.

As with Dan, I may be mistaken though!  Wink/being sarcastic

They used the 747-200s VTOL capabilities to land it onto those stands  Smile/happy/getting dizzy


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Ok, Mr. Sarcastic and Junior  Smile.

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.

Yup, Tamsin, thanks, I didn't upload my pix yet...

But to be there is actually quite some more!

This town has quite some big churches to visit...but YankeeMike is just all!!!

Sinsheim will be offering TU144 and Concorde side by side about April 2004 or so...
