DCS is DaimlerChrysler Aviation, the aircraft is D-ADNA. DaimlerChrysler Aviation flies STR-PTK-STR three times a week I think. STD is 10:30lt I think. The reason for today's delay is that STR had to be closed for four hours today, because a Citation had an incident and finally landed without main gear somewhere beside the runway. Here's the story (in german): http://www.stuttgarter-zeitung.de/stz/page/detail.php/278485

Actually the Transatlantic Star (D-ADNA/callsign Twinstar) flies 4 times weekly. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, & Sunday. Tuesday & Thursday it flies to the DaimlerChrysler Plant in Vitoria, Spain. Saturday is maintenance. It arrives from STR anywhere between 1:15pm & 1:45pm. It departs back to STR between 3:30pm & 4:30pm. An awesome sight!
