Computers automate start and landing operations. Flies, today so perfected that hardly anyone wasted a thought on the machines and men of the first hour - on Albert Schäfer for example, the first air mileage millionaire of Lufthansa.
Berlin-Tempelhof 50 years ago. The men throw their flying machines for the start to a new future. The technology to the air costs their price, a too high for the many small airlines. Their cooperation leads to the founding of the Lufthansa on January 6, 1926. She are the long-awaited chance to conquer the sky for the people the pilots from first days of flight time. Distances shrink to a level held barely for possible.
Just a few weeks after its creation, the Lufthansa takes their first flights. Half a year later, she opened a night route between Berlin and Königsberg. From now on will be the motto for decades: the aircraft modernization and the development of new flight routes. Catapult-launched on-board aircraft significantly reduce the transport time of the post between Germany and America.
A too expensive jumbo, the flying boat DO X. Its maiden flight to New York is also be last. More successful was the Junkers G 38. Some of their passengers can enjoy the view through window in the wings forward undisturbed. With 34 passengers on board, the giant bird fly 3,000 kilometers.
The flying boat Dornier provides whale from 1932 to pacemaker services when establishing a connection across the South Atlantic. The aircraft use converted freighter as floating airfields on their jumps across the Atlantic.
In the 1930s, Lufthansa takes a rough recovery. Flying is "in". To track performance, the aircraft already claimed the rank of Massenverkehrsmittels. New aircraft are designed and built, they have proven themselves over the Amazon and the Himalayas and Lufthansa's reputation to be fast, punctual and above all reliable.
For pilots and engineers, challenges remain: one of them is the Atlantic Ocean.
On August 10, 1938, also of the North Atlantic is defeated. A Fokke Wulf 2000 "Condor" from Berlin arrives after a non-stop flight in America.
Late 1938 the Lufthansa is the second largest airline in Europe.
At the intersection of technological progress: blast from the past, which began 50 years ago. Even in the age of the jet aircraft, Lufthansa is one of the leading aviation companies in the world.
If Bayern celebrate festivals, strangers easily lose the overview. Baroque Joie de vivre mixed with liberality and a sense of art formed in centuries: Munich's appeal, especially to young people, is in the Federal Republic without example. While the big cities have become inhospitable anywhere losing inhabitants, Munich, often the secret capital of Germany is one of more than ten thousand new residents called, every year.
Stars of show business, art and literature establishment have felt at home since time immemorial here, attracted by the lifestyle of the city, they even coined. In all space, Munich have retained their originality and authenticity. You are attached to the traditional, Bavaria's national character remained almost untouched by the Zeitgeist of massification and leveling.
Lust for life and piety: Between these two Poland ur Munich with sprichwörtlichem phlegm has established itself in legal consciousness, he pretty much put it in the history of the people. But also this is Munich: futuristic living landscapes near the city, large settlements of the Assembly line, little loved, but essential, to absorb the influx of people, which increased to the same extent as the economic force of the city.
There Do it well because, to Dodge in the life and art of the Baroque worked for a couple of hours in a different landscape. Way of life – today the fashion is for Munich. In Germany's fashion capital of the world's leading fashion houses are represented.
The headquarters of BMW. Bavaria sport sedans are sought after all over the world. Tradition must be not in the way of the progress. The stranger is surprised when he discovered Munich as industrial city, after Hamburg second in the Federal territory. The German Aerospace Centre in Munich.
And Of course sports. Munich hosted the Olympic Games four years ago. Today, it plays under the world famous tent roof of the Olympic Stadium of the soccer Cup winners Bayern Munich. Art and show - Munich has remained true to himself.
Her Office is located on the 5th floor of the Bonn Parliament. Lenelotte v. Bothmer is a politician - of 35 women among the 518 people representatives of the Federal Republic of Germany.
In the Bundestag, she represents the population of the State of Lower Saxony as the only social-democratic politician. She is at home in the State capital of Hanover.
The double burden of work and household is familiar to you. Lenelotte v. Bothmer "went into politics", as the youngest of their six children was enrolled.
"Curiously little women in the Federal Republic of Germany" venture as they, to connect the life for the family with a commitment in public life.
Occasionally a trip. The working days in the metropolis of Government are filled with meetings, deliberations and resolutions in the Parliament and its committees. Political routine work, which is overlaid in public too quickly from the splendor of publicity-effective invitations and receptions.
A dinner with the Egyptian Ambassador - an exchange of views with parliamentarians and journalists at the wife of the German Chancellor. Here she combines the pleasant with the useful: information as a prerequisite for political action.
Special the members Lenelotte v. Bothmer is interested in the Middle East and Europe. In the Bonn Parliament she taught their fellow MEPs European issues in detail as a member of various committees of the WEU and the Council of Europe.
Because the European Community is getting closer. Soon, 250 million citizens in direct election to determine the members of the European Parliament. For Lenelotte v. Bothmer, perhaps a new task. The workers proudly call it the "Heide-Suez", the 115 kilometer-long Elbe side canal, which stretches near the border with East Germany through the Lüneburg Heath, connects the Mittellandkanal to the Elbe, and thus to the German inland waterways connecting the seaport Hamburg.
The most interesting engineering work of the Elbe side canal is the ship lift Scharnebeck, the largest ship lift in the world. 1969 began here - close to the town of Lüneburg - the construction work.
The boat lift is one of two buildings, is to overcome the height difference in the course of the Elbe side canal. 61 meters must be compensated. 23 meters creates a lock close to the Elbe River, 38 meters the boat lift in Scharnebeck.
In the language of engineers, Scharnebeck is a "double vertical lift with two independently working trays" - in which ships mountain or downhill ride. Every trough has a usable length of 100 meters, a width of 12 meters and a water depth of 3.50 meters. In the four towers of the leaders run the counterweights from heavy concrete that hold each of the nearly 6,000 to heavy slow in balance. A hub takes about 15 minutes, the input and exit into the trough.
At the beginning of this year were the first ships to the maiden voyage in the lift. The newly built port of Lüneburg was their destination.
A 1976 is again celebrated: the Elbe side canal should be navigable in its entirety for ships up to 1,350 to capacity.
Experts marveled: on the test track of the VW test center in Wolfsburg demonstrated motor journalist Fritz B. Busch racing qualities of the diesel engine, derided as "lame". His goal was to bring back the unofficial speed record for diesel-powered vehicles in the motherland of the diesel engine.
230 km/h Busch had to beat the "diesel"star. An American had set this record in 1974 with a Japanese diesel race car.
The engine in the "diesel Star" is a conventional 5-cylinder Mercedes-Benz-diesel engine with three liters of displacement. His performance has increased with the help of a turbocharger from 80 to 187 HP.
The optimal body shape has been studied in the wind tunnel. Bush designed and built the diesel star together with friends in the capital construction procedures: the rear suspension they adopted a formula II race car, the front axle of the VW Beetle. The development phase was completed with the installation of a new front spoiler. Despite unfavorable wind conditions went the new diesel racer on the track.
After four successful record over shorter distances - the masterpiece of the Swabian hobbyists: The new top speed record, 253.7 kilometers an hour. After the successful premiere Bush wants to demonstrate the newfound qualities of the economical and environmentally-friendly diesel engine also on long distances.
