Aviation buffs! Incredible WORKING miniature airport

Here, thanks to the keen eye of Agent 1, is a 16+ minute video of "Flughafen Knuffingen", a tiny perfect airport. It's fully functioning -- an amazing demonstration of what can be done when time and money are no object.

Watch at least long enough to see a take-off and landing. The best ones are towards the end, from about 12:30.

Perhaps Agent 17 can enlighten us as to the aircraft type -- prop job -- which takes off around 14:20?

Thought for the day: This shows what German engineers can do when they are motivated. Didn't the Luftwaffe start with the Hitler youth playing with gliders?!

  1. You are correct about the Luftwaffe and gliders.
    Looks like a Boeing Dreamliner (just a guess)
