Nice layover in Frankfurt

May 2013

Before going to Frankfurt we had a night stop Barcelona. One photo of TAP's main hangar before departure to BCN,

LIS - Hangar 6

and another one when we arrived back in Lisbon as dead head crew in a PGA's Embraer 145 (CS-TPJ).

NetJet's G-V-SP Gulfstream G550

Then it was time to fly to Frankfurt!

Saturday morning, I decided to go for a walk... The day started with rain but the weather improved greatly later.

First couple of photos near Messe Frankfurt where our hotel is located,



and then a stroll alongside the Main River...

Frankfurt Love Bridge

New skyscrapers being built



The contrast of green and grey

Going to the very centre of the city, I found a nice outdoor with a classic Junkers Ju 52.


The famous MyZeil mall...

Nice glass construction!

Seen from inside...

Inside the mall, Saturn was the most interesting store for me.

I had lunch in a McDonald's nearby the mall.


Another interesting outdoor...

Boeing 707

And no doubt Frankfurt Airport is a big european hub. You can evaluate that by the great number of airlines present in the city.

China Eastern, Yemen, Vietnam...

... Japan Airlines

And while going back to the hotel...

Roger Waters will play in Frankfurt!
