Pan American Airplanes at Rhein-Main Airport, Frankfurt (FRA)

A picture taken by Volker's father in the fifties at Rhein-Main Airport, and a rare picture, as only 55 of these planes were built . The Boeing B377 Stratocruiser was developed from the bomber B-29 Superfortress. She was bigger than the Super Constellation and had a bar in the lower deck. She was used for instance by Pan Am and Northwest Airlines.
