The world's largest miniature airport, the creation of which took six years and the amount of $ 5 million, opened to the public at the exhibition Miniatur Wunderland, located in Hamburg, Germany. Basis for the creation of this full-featured model was taken Hamburg Airport, one of the oldest airports in the history of the world. The created model is so perfect that you feel as though a giant has taken the original and reduced it in size with the help of magic. Airport Miniatur Wunderland includes cars, tow trucks, well-lit in blue and red light runways, bright yellow lights illuminating the airport, which just make it glow in the dark. All elements of the model, including street lights, traffic lights and other elements of the model are made with great care, making the model a truly amazing and compelling admire patience and ability of its creators. As part of the model are about 40 aircraft models, including models of Airbus and Boeing. Around the aircraft and runways are moving about 90 vehicles maintenance and passenger transport. At each of the planes is a trademark of airlines such as Lufthansa, AirBerlin, Air France, TUI, Emirates and KLM. Movement of miniature vehicles controls installed in their system "carsystem", which can be controlled by a computer. The most remarkable feature of this model is that model airplanes can actually "fly" and "sit" on the runway. This is achieved through the use of very thin metal wires connected to the drives, hidden below the runway. Due to the small thickness of the wires are almost invisible to sight, but because of them achieved an almost complete illusion of taking off and landing. Young models of trucks and tow trucks equipped with a yellow "lights flashing, move the aircraft to the landing, disembarkation, where aircraft are put forward slowly moving walkways connecting the aircraft to the airport building. Meanwhile, the aircraft approaching tankers, which pumped the contents of their tanks in the fuel tanks of aircraft. The original of this model, the Hamburg Airport was opened in 1911 and was then an area 436 square meters. Modern airport has increased in an area of more than ten times and now occupies the area of 5.7 square kilometers.
