Posted on March 19, 2023March 19, 2023 by WillemSunday/ arrival in Frankfurt 🏙 My flight went without incident, and I took a train and a tram to get to my hotel here in Frankfurt. Just about an hour away from landing, somewhere over the British Isles. The Airbus A340-300 has FOUR main engines. The newer jets such as the A350 and Boeing 787 have only two. More efficient (less fuel) but more risk in the case of an engine failure? On the tarmac at Frankfurt airport— the view from the bus that will take us to the terminal. Here comes my train. The train station is underneath Frankfurt airport’s Terminal 1, and the S8 or S9 regional train will get one into the city. Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof (Main Train Station). Heading outside to catch the tram (streetcar) to the hotel. A little later, after I had settled into the hotel, I went for a walk in a park called Senckenberganlage. It got to 16 °C today (60°F) but will fall back to 10 °C (50°F) tomorrow.The tower is the Messeturm, or Trade Fair Tower, 63 stories and 257 m (843 ft) tall.
