Farewell Tempelhof!

Last Thursday saw the last flights from Berlin's historic Tempelhof airport.

The last major commercial airliner flight was by Cirrus.

For a full history of this famed airport - please go here:


Having flown from all 3 of the German Capital's airports - Tempelhof was by far the most unusual. While Tegel's close in gates make it convenient, Tempelhof was a step back in time. decidedly gothic it was and remains one of the last symbols of Hitler's vision of Germany.

Let's hope someone decides to do something good with it.
