But the author forgot to mention that the airport in Frankfurt is military-civilian, divided into two zones. The US military air base is located on the military side. In 1992, I personally observed from the AEROFLOT plane from Moscow when landing on take-off on the military side of the airport ranks of military equipment and military contingent. And when leaving the airport I saw a concrete fence and at the intersection on the entrance road to the military zone there was a poster on which it was written in bilingual English and German that it was the US Air Force base, and our German desks the neros who met and drove us themselves confirmed that this base is here. And at the same time we saw an American HAMMER driving along the military road from the airport base with a sharp black man at the wheel, who stopped at the intersection and missed our cars from the airport . It is this fact that the author forgot to indicate, for some reason, either intentionally or not by knowledge of all the subtleties.
