    The Airlift Memorial at Frankfurt Airport (on the site of the former Rhein-Main Air Base, the US Air Force Air Force Base) was built in 1985 as a counterpart to the Berlin Airlift Monument at Tempelhof Airport, which dates back to 1951. Two so-called "raisin bombers" - a Douglas C-47 ("Dakota") and a Douglas C-54 ("Skymaster") flank the approach of a bridge arch, which rises to the sky with three Berlin-pointing struts. The monument is reminiscent of the Berlin Airlift to supply the city of Berlin by aircraft of the Western Allies, after the Soviet military government for Germany from June 24, 1948 to May 12, 1949 had blocked the land and waterways from the western occupation zones to (West) Berlin ,
    The Frankfurt Airlift Memorial has been open all year round since the Air Base was dissolved (beginning of April to the end of September 8 am to 8 pm, otherwise 8 am to 6 pm), access by bike from Zeppelinheim.

    The spotter Zeppelinheim is located directly on the A5 in the immediate vicinity of the Luftbrückendenkmals.
    At this point of the tour, you will not only see planes taking off and landing, you can also directly observe the rolling traffic from close by.

    The spotter points around the airport are recommended in every season. Also for children an absolute highlight.
