Frankfurt Rhein-Main Airport In The Late 1950’s by Axel J.

In the 1950’s Frankfurt Rhein-Main Airport was a busy place dominated by the sound of propliners as the Douglas Commercial products from DC-3 up to DC-7, Convairs or Lockheed Constellations. With photos from the Axel J. Collection we have the chance for a look back into a time, when the props had their high-time and the early jetliners waiting on the doorstep, pioneering the new propulsion.

Unfortunately the photographer of the following historic pictures is unknown, all photos by ” Sammlung Axel J.” / “Axel J. Collection”
