For anyone in Germany over the next few weeks or who may wish to go there, NASA's DC-8 will be based out of Ramstein and operating with DLR's Airbus A320 on testing jet emissions. Apparently arriving 14 January and staying until 4th February.

I'm struggling to work out what's parked behind the DC-8: possibly a KC-135 ??
