Comments:

I am working as a mechanic for Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd at Frankfurt Airport.
I got to see Rhein Main AB being demolished and I have to admit, it kind of hurt.

Your favorite Rhein Main Story:

Scott Brown and I were on a self imposed lunch break from our QA duties of zapping people on the flight line and we were sitting on the observation hill on Ellis Road watching the airplanes land. A Hungarian passenger plane landed and pulled off the hammerhead in the direction of the Quebec parking spot and the SP's were waiting for it with their M16's out. After a few minutes 2 guys jump out of the airplane and put their hands up and the SP's take them away. Later Scooter and I found out the airplane was hijacked and the two guys demanded to be turned over to the American authorities in Frankfurt. We both kind of wondered if we should stay or run in case they decided to shoot at people, both sides I mean. Ok not an actual Enroute story but it was close to where C-5's sometimes would park. It's kind of the same...

Here is a computer overlay of how the airport will expand. If you remember the layout (look on Google Earth) you can see that where Rhein Main AB was will be the new terminal.

A panorama from the Cargo City South Parking ramp showing the tower that was built in 87-88 and Hangar 8. Where I am standing is where EOD used to blow up the stuff they found on base.
