This craft: Organ builders the organ - Queen of instruments. 250 years ago, in the age of the Baroque, she had their heyday, while organ music made the step to the modern era, the organ remained loyal to his old construction principles. To this day.

This technique: Jumbo freighter Jumbo-time. When it is night in Frankfurt, his time comes. At the meeting of the air freighters to the Frankfurt Rhein-Main airport, the cargo jumbo jet is the number 1. Six times a week, he crossed the North Atlantic Ocean and drags each up to 100 tons of cargo.
Five years ago, this freighter version of the Boeing 747 made its maiden flight. Lufthansa was the first airline in the world dared the experiment using the over 100 million mark expensive Jumbo as a flying wagon.
Now constructed new loading device - including a special lifting table, which unloads the fully laden cargo ship within an hour.
300-400 tons of cargo are handled here each night, most in transit. Urgent goods in the broadest sense: fruits, vegetables, urgently needed spare parts, cars, machines, animals.
The vehicle rolls and turnout system automates the transport. In Chargers - about 70 percent of the cargo transported on pallets, containers and igloos. Frankfurt is the hub of German freight air. Here is collected every night and loaded what was transported up hours before on the track, on the road or in the cargo hatches of passenger aircraft from all areas of the Federal Republic. The loadmaster can by button and pull effortlessly tons heavy loads back and forth. All cables converge in his control panel connecting lift and aircraft loading system. Speed is the main selling point in the air transport of the goods. The Lufthansa guarantees for example foreign shippers that so-called transit cargo is transhipped from aircraft to aircraft within an hour.
Engages the expanded cockpit and nose again: the start signal for a new trans-Atlantic flight. The packed Jumbo freighter will be almost 80 tons easier at his arrival in the United States. It consumes as much fuel on the way. However, it is a popular transport system: the Lufthansa cargo volume growing year on year by more than 20 percent. This culture: Metro music before the stations of Paris played the professional accordion player affliction: who otherwise earn their living in the Metro, fled out of necessity at the Earth's surface as a paid musician in company strength occupied the Metro shafts, to teach the flute to the 4 million daily passengers. Of course in the best of intentions. More quality of life into the ground, had the municipal Railway Administration. She granted to 50,000 marks and that sent some 200 musicians in the Parisian underworld. Music stations were from Metro stations.
"Metro-molto-allegro" - that was the motto for four days. Rock, folk, jazz and classical music accompanied the guests of the Metro on the way to the Office, and in the evening on the way home. Upset, only some teachers have responded. On the first day, thousands of students had skipped the first hour because they could not resist the temptation to listen to an underground concert for the price of a Metro ticket. The intention of the Metro administration, their passengers pass the time under the Earth, was predominantly received. Now to prepare a long-term program: leisure culture, from the art exhibition to the Judo fight, to constantly accompany the Metro drivers in the future.
