Photographer's Note

I wanted to go on airship tour already in June, 2017. That time my flight was cancelled, as far as I understood, due to risk of a thunderstorm. Who would want to be onboard an airship when lightning strikes!

Instead of that I visited Dornier Museum on the other side of Friedrichshafen Airport. Dornier was a German aircraft manufacturer, maybe best known for giant flying boats it built in 1920's. Aircraft in the picture is Dornier Do 31, an experimental vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. It's first flight was in 1967 and it still remains the only VTOL-capable jet-powered transport aircraft to ever fly.
