Technik Museum Speyer – Lufthansa 747 Soaring High!

One of the impressive aspects of the Technik Museum Speyer in Germany is the way they have positioned aircraft in the airpark atop plinths and the like. The Lufthansa Boeing 747-230 named “Schleswig-Holstein” is something else though – a) it’s a Jumbo Jet! b) the structure it sits atop is huge! c) what an experience it is going up there and walking along the wing up high!
