Berlin's resident DC-3 is seen here sharing the unique Templehof covered parking area with fellow Dakotas SE-CFP, G-AMPY and LN-WND to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Berlin Airlift. D-CXXX was formerly G-AMPZ so it is certainly not the first time she has sat alongside Air Atlantique sister-ship G-AMPY!
