9th July 2006 - FIFA World Cup™ Final 2006 in Berlin. You see a part(!) of the apron full with Bizzjets and Props. I have counted 194 jets, 50 props and 3 airliners so far. It was a spectacular and very busy day (round about 900 movements) for this historic airport in the middle of Berlin. By the way: Italy won after a penalty showdown... (Canon 20D @ 17mm)

This is an historical airport and looks so great! And yes, Italy defeated France, they were 1-1 and at the end the score was 5-3, Trezeguet missed one penalty shot.

Awesome shot Frank! I saw this spectacular scene from the highway too, it was amazing! The aircrafts were parked everywhere around the airfield. Imagine THF would have been closed as it was planned for 2004 already...

The dark bizjet first in the picture is from Finland (OH). I think this plane brought Finland's head(s) of state to Berlin.

Great capture. The whole world was there.

Nice shot of a truely historic airport, and what a foto to commemorate the World Cup. I don't know about the number of planes being at the airport at the same time, but a large number of aircraft have been involved in the Berlin Airlift after WWII (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Blockade for more info on that issue), lots of them bound for Tempelhof.

What a mess, I wouldn't have worked there that day!one of the airliner is the eurofly A320-100...the official plane of Italian Team! that plane landed at Pratica di Mare carrying the Cup the day after, where ten blu MB339CD, better known as Freccie Tricolare, gave to our "eroes" one of the best welcome ever! by the way, great great shot frank!

Awesome picture. The curviture of the apron makes it even more beautiful. But to tell you the truth those planes look kind of funny because they are quite small. They look like an army gettin' ready to go to combat. Anyway, fantastic shot!

For ages politicians are talking about closure of Tempelhof airfield, no idea what amount of traffic this airfield could handle and number of excellent customers could be attracted to the city.

Absolutely fantastic shot! To our Berlin friends, keep this airport open! What an amazing piece of history... glad to see it's potential used again. (can you get me a tour in the airport?)
- And as an American stationed near Kaiserslautern, what an exceptional job the Germans did with the FIFA World Cup this year. It was such a blast, and all went without a hitch. Props to Germany for such a great job!
