Picture of the Day: Prepare for Landing

 

PREPARE FOR LANDING

Seen here is the small runway/airport known as the Farrenberg aerodrome (FAR1). It sits atop a hill of the same name in the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany. You can see the tiny airport and runway on Google Maps by entering the following coordinates: 48°23’8.49″N 009°04’37.76″E (interestingly, in the Google Maps link you can see a handful of sailplanes preparing for launch)

Due to Farrenberg’s elevation, it is often above the cloud ceiling and makes for dramatic pictures like these when viewed from above.
