FRA Pics With Rhein-Main Air Base Background

Thu Jan 08, 2004 3:28 am

Hi,
I've tried to find good pictures of planes with the western U.S. Air Base hangar in the background that has "Mission Success" painted on it . It should be easy to take pics of that but I only found pics with the tower or the eastern hangar (Security-Safety) in the background:

However, I'd like to see more pics with the western hangar in the background, preferably with an Air Force plane in the foreground.
It shouldn't be a problem since the hangar is visible from the viewing terrace as far as I know.
Maybe somebody could snap one for me or give me link?
Well, after all we won't have that scenery in the background for much longer. Sadly in September of next year Rhein-Main Air Base will close.
Thanx.

After some more browsing I did find a few pics, however I was thinking of a closer shot with a USAF plane in the foreground. I guess that kind of picture is not possible from the terrace?
Well, it'd be nice though.

I really like the United pic, you wouldn't know this is a commercial airport, too when looking at it.
