Airsicknessbag, I can't remember anything related to aviation in the press without a statement of Mr. Fongern
Even my girlfriend, who is absolutely interested in aviation, asked after the Midair "Wo bleibt denn der Fongern?".
D-aqui, there was a big article in the Saturday FAZ, but I think their articles disappear very fast on their web page.
Hawkeye2, yes but there were not many USAF planes here pre-11.9.. And those were flown by very expierenced pilots who had absolutely no problems with the procedures.
Yyz717, I and nearly all other Germans are very thankful what the USA did for us after the WW2. But that does not mean they can do anything they want, and risking to blow up to blow thousands of people away doesn't seem too nice to me.
NZ767, after the 11.9. many pilots failed to follow the SIDs and STARs in FRA, mixed up the runways 25L and 25R, crossed the way of other airliners etc.
For example there was a C5 flying over Trebur (a little town ~20km away from FRA) in 400ft - you can imagine what the inhabitants of that town thought. I think they were not refusing to use them, they were just unable. Probably they came from AFBs in the USA and have never flown a SID or STAR (I don't know if they have these procedures at the AFBs)
