A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 16, 2007:
I'm in this picture, well sort of anyways, I lived at Rhein-Main Airbase's housing complex - you can see it (tan colored buildings surrounded by trees) beyond the A3 just past Terminal 2.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri January 26, 2007:
One of the great shots I´ve ever seen! Well done!!!
You can see the FRA Port veeeeerrrryyy good!!! I can only say "Airport City". :)
I want to be there too, but it´s to far away. This airport is 227km away from me but the Dusseldorf aiport is only 19km away. Howerver may be I will get there one day.

Sorry, i did mean 5 stars, fantastic picture

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 4, 2006:
I love the unusual gate the Austrian A320 is using. Reminds me of the gates used back in the 60's with the jet age coming in.

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 16, 2006:
Good time of day, lots of different planes/airlines, bustling with activity,interesting point of view.

A visitor from Hungary posted Sat September 16, 2006:

Great airport!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 21, 2006:
It's an amazing photo because it got a massive bit of the terminal in the shot and you can see alot of airlines!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon August 7, 2006:
To the american visitor: the cockpit on the rooftop is a DC-8, you were right! the roof was once the visitor platform, i hope FRA will have one again soon!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue July 25, 2006:
Awesome overview. But it is really a Sunday afternoon, usually the parking places at the link from Terminal 1 (left) to Terminal 2 (top middle) are filled with Air India 747's and lots of USAirways, AA and United crafts.

Theres an Emirates Airbus seen at the place where the A380 was parked (Terminal 2, top middle).

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed July 12, 2006:

A visitor from Greece posted Wed April 5, 2006:
From this height a busy airport looks like a totally messy place,but in fact it's working near to 100% organization!Especially THIS airport.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 27, 2006:
Frankfurt airport kinda cool

A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon March 27, 2006:
Anybody feel like counting the vehicles? ;) Great airport that passed through many times!

A visitor from Belgium posted Tue March 14, 2006:
Very cool but I count and re-count but I see 8 747 + 4 340 + 2 772 + 2 330 + 3 310 = 19 wides bodies.
On the left of the IB 32, you can see an Ethiad 332.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 9, 2006:
That's a very big airport. How on earth do they know where to psrk?

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 27, 2006:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun February 26, 2006:
This image is fabulous!

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 25, 2006:
A ramp agents nightmare!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue February 21, 2006:
Wow, nice one! Although it is way emptier than I am used to from FRA. To capture the whole airport you would need a fisheye lense.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue February 21, 2006:
Great picture! I have flown from FRA dozens of times. A shame that you cannot see what comes after the baseline of the photo, probably another 10 Jumbos at the LH Technik hangar and the cargo apron.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon February 13, 2006:
Nice shot! Was the photographer just taking off?

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 21, 2005:
Wow!!!!.excellent shot. beautiful airport with a lot of details.

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 20, 2005:
I rated this photo five stars not only for the details of the airport, but also the details off the airport. I was stationed at Rhein Main and it shows the apartments we used to reside in. Also shows the main autobahns 3,5 The only thing it is missing is the skyline, which is impressive. Excellent shot.

A visitor from Chile posted Mon September 12, 2005:
What a great shot, FRA is one of the best airports in Europe. A lot of traffic, and that is one of the things that I don´t see much in SCL.

A visitor from Uruguay posted Sat September 10, 2005:
Great level of details. You can see thousands of ramp vehicles. Very busy airport....

A visitor from Italy posted Tue September 6, 2005:

Excellent pic of an excellent airport!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri September 2, 2005:
Have great memories of the day that I spotted there on top of the terminal where Air Asiana is standing. Heaven for planelovers and spotters, that's for sure.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu September 1, 2005:
Very cool aerial view of the Frankfurt Terminal 1

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Thu September 1, 2005:
Can you see the biggest 'plane on the field? Without doubt it is the SAA A340-600. It dwarfs the 747 in a nose-to-nos4e. Now imagine the A380 beside that..

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 1, 2005:
The detail of the photo says high quality camera. Noticed the A320 parallel parked on the second terminal. The 747 on end of the Y has a side cargo door openend and a tail stand in place.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu September 1, 2005:
I love to see all these airliners from all over the globe! Can anyone tell which two airliners are parked at 11 o' clock, seen from the Air China jumbo? (the ones left of Iberia)

A visitor from Germany posted Thu September 1, 2005:
Just amazing

A visitor from Belgium posted Thu September 1, 2005:

Congrats, what an ideal angle.

OLI.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Thu September 1, 2005:
Any close-up aerial view of an airport rates 5 stars by me, particularly FRA which I have flown into on many occasions. Most often viewed from my perspective as a Flight Attendant, seeing FRA from such an angle makes me appreciate even more what a great place it really is.

A visitor from Peru posted Thu September 1, 2005:
Wow I just have no words to describe this it is just a beautiful shot congratulations !!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed August 31, 2005:
What a great Airport full of character. The Y-shape of the "inner"-Terminal is for me one big architectural Masterpiece that gives Frankfurts Airport its unique appearance. Fra has always been like the definition definition of an airport for me, following its architectural changes and growth over the years - thanks for that picture.
