Extraordinary photo.

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 16, 2010:
Only having seen a photo of this magnificent aircraft yesterday, via Clara Adams maiden voyages, the contrast between the different size planes, the spectators on the beach, an amazing feat!!!

A visitor from Australia posted Sat November 20, 2010:
At least with these aircraft it did not matter whether the landing was wet!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sat November 20, 2010:
Regardless of location........as much viewer enthusiasm here as when you see the 'big bus' 380 for the first time !.
Cheers Tim

This is a time machine!

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue August 17, 2010:
This photo would make any aircraft museum in the world proud. It's nice to see people so absorbed by the aircraft, in a time when aviation was still a novelty for so many.

Magnificent,Amazing,Superb,Fantastic...

A visitor from Switzerland posted Wed November 18, 2009:
This photograph represents the history of flight by one of the greatest planes ever built.

Dornier X !!! fabulous...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon March 2, 2009:
A beautifiully composed photograph, and a wonderful period piece: just look at those 1930's clothes and hairstyles! The aircraft itself is very rare, and few technically good photos survive. Well done, the Dutch grandfather!

History never dies. Beautifull photo.

Yes, I agree too! I always stop when I see a plane, but imagine seeing this monster plane fly over!

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 5, 2008:
Awesome

A visitor from Ecuador posted Wed April 30, 2008:
I agree the British guy; we all should go back to the age when people had astonishment capacity... In fact, to make possible that a heavy piece of metal can fly is something incredible. You never loose your capacity of say wow!

Great Photo

A visitor from Germany posted Wed March 19, 2008:

Fantastic vintage photo. I hope more of these get posted, showing vintage aircraft in day-to-day use.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 17, 2008:
The way aviation was and should be. Awesome!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed November 14, 2007:
Very impressive pic, i wish i would have had such things left by my great auntie. Even greater: Location is my hometown, although photo seems to have been taken off-airport resp. Lübeck-Travemünde (former seaplane port until WW2).

A wonder of first age of aviation ,back to the very begining

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 23, 2007:
Classic photo, superb

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu April 12, 2007:
This is what The Wonder Of Aviation is all about. Men, Women and children of all ages staring with fascination at what, at the time, must have seemed too magical to be believable. There's only a relatively small number of us now that feel this way when we see iron birds gliding through the air. This picture perfectly captures how we feel about our passion.

Great shot, at right place in right time!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed February 14, 2007:
The DO-X had 12 (yes, twelve) engines.

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 29, 2007:
What a great and historic photo! I find it very humbling that people built and flew this awesome machine a half century before I was even born. Man, I am not worthy, lol.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 27, 2007:
That must be the rarest aircraft on the site. Must have been an impressive sight .. and sound - how many engines has it got?!

A visitor from Italy posted Sat December 30, 2006:

It's an excellent shot(!) and I would have given it five stars had it been a close up. I still have a plastic model at home and I've been in this aircraft several times before WW II, as a child, but by this time it was already a "museum".

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 24, 2006:
This picture was not taken at Lübeck-Blankensee, but at Lübeck-Travemünde (not an airport). It is entirely plausible though that the Do-X was on its way to Blankensee, which is some 30km west of Travemünde. Nice picture!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed May 24, 2006:
Incredible picture. A great piece of history.

A visitor from France posted Tue May 23, 2006:
