Knuffingen Airport - World's Largest Model Airport

Knuffingen Airport - World’s Largest Model AirportI have always thought it would be cool to build a model of an airport, similar to the way train aficionados build model train layouts. How to make the airplanes take off and land realistically would be the biggest problem. Now it has been done. After six years of building, the ficticuous Knuffingen Airport, based on Hamburg’s airport, has is on public display at Knuffingen Airport - World’s Largest Model AirportMiniatur Wunderland, in Hamburg, Germany. The layout features 40 aircraft that take off and land and 90 vehicles that roam around the runways automatically. Detail is incredible. Fortunately, there is a video that showcases the operations. Enjoy.
