Yes, you can get the coordinates off: http://gc.kls2.com/

Edit: I have noticed that Germany is in better resolution than most places, FRA is in very good resolution (50.026421 N, 8.543125 E).

Also Thanks for the GC link.

Errr, it is within Belgium. The yellow lines in google earth are the country borders, the white lines are city/state borders. The airport is just outside Brussels city.

I wonder if there are plans to expand the airport code locator on Google Earth beyond the US. Just typing in the airport code is a handy feature.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
