This is a wonderful shot of Frankfurt airport where you can see both terminals, that's what I like the most of it. Secondly you see lot's of traffic on little space which makes it even more interesting to look at. FRA is a great airport!!! It looks like everybody wants to come to FRA (different airliners)!

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.

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.

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.

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..

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.

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).
