    This is definitely not a "Rosinenbomber".
    As far as I know the US Army did not use Boeing 737s or similar planes to supply Berlin...

    The placemark is named "Airplane approach FRA" and that's what it is, an 2-engine-jet like B737/A320 on it's final for 25R. I don't know how you believe it's a Rosinenbomber ("raisin bombers").

    Guys, if you're looking for the Berlin Airlift Memorial, go check out these Placemarks: "Berlin Airlift Memorial (1)" and "Berlin Airlift Memorial (2)". One of them was erected right next to the A5 freeway in Frankfurt, the corresponding piece is located at TXL airport in Berlin. Believe me, the thing you're claiming to be a "rosienenbomber" [sic] is a random twin-engine jet on final approach into Frankfurt. I see the Frankfurt memorial every morning on my way to work and it definitely does not sit in the middle of the city's forest...

    I think the plane is a Boing 737-800 . Ryanair a Irish Flightcompany only has got such planes. But on the airport Hahn there is a restaurante "Rosinenbomber"

    Wink

    just to get the history correct: in WWII noone supported Berlin by airplanes (Rosinenbomber), that was some years later, when the Sovjets closed their zone of occupation around Berlin.
