What's This At FRA

I just had a look at the Top of Yesterday pic, and I was wondering what on earth that helicopter looking thing is? I suppose it's a helicopter, but it's looking a bit scrapped & is lacking its rotor blades. Also, it looks like it's parked on top of the finger, but that might be the eyes playing a trick on me.

Can any of the FRA spotters enlight me on this one?

The helicopter on top of the terminal is part of the static aircraft display for the observation deck. I am not sure if it is still open, it's been years since I've been there. I remember going up there and seeing the displays and watching the major airport scene at work. That is where I bought my first Schabak airplane model, a United 757 (OOC).
