Cologne/Bonn, 18/09/2011

Today was the annual open house at the DLR, Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt / German Air and Space Agency. No flight displays, other then 3 helicopters offering scenic flights, but the static had a few gems.

 

Normally the planes at the storage dump are too far away to be read or made photos off. But from the stairs leading to the A380 some photos could be made. They where still at a long distance, so the quality ain't great. Only three where seen, there used to be a dozen or so. Not sure what happened with the rest, scrapping seems likely.

 

Inside the A380 we where allowed to walk over the main deck, both 2nd and 1st floor. The 2nd floor had nothing but water tanks and exposed walls and ceilings. The 1st floor had a few work stations seen below. The cockpit was out of bounds.

 

The absolute highlight was the NASA/DLR flying observatory. The hump just in front of the tail slides open to reveal a telescope.

Apologies for the stairs, this was the only shot possible that was not back-lit.
