Hamburg Airport Days to Showcase the Future of Flying

They are the largest aviation show of Northern Germany and a great family event: the Airport Days Hamburg. Returning to the grounds of Hamburg Airport and Lufthansa Technik on the weekend of 22-23 August 2015, 100 airplanes will be showcased next to vintage aircraft. This year, some 100,000 visitors are expected to enjoy the Airport Days Hamburg, where Euro Wings will be presenting its first Airbus A330-200 and Airbus showcase its Airbus A300-600ST cargo aircraft, better known as “Beluga”.

Flying Veterans

For the lovers of vintage aircraft, the flying veterans will be the historic highlights of the Airport Days Hamburg: the Focke-Wulf Fw 44 ‘Stieglitz’ built in 1936, the Junkers Ju52 (“Iron Annie”) from Lufthansa, built in 1936 and today operating regular scenic flights, the 1936 built biplane Waco YKS-6 air ambulance use in Alaska until 1989, and the
De Havilland DHC104-Dov (1949) in the old LTU livery. Also on display will be the L-1049 Lockheed Super Constellation (1955), one of the two Constellations still airworthy, Lufthansa’s first four-engine jet airline Boeing B707-430 (1960) and the world’s biggest single-engine biplane, the Antonov AN-2, built in 1973.
