Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly discusses the landing of the first A 380 at Frankfurt International Airport reflects from a theological perspective. Many important people are expected to be at the airport to welcome the first landing of an A 380 in Frankfurt. The mayor of Frankfurt, the minister of the State of Hessia, and several regional politicians are already waiting at a special VIP gate to observe the landing from a first class position. "The Airbus 380 is the biggest passenger plane in the world and the first plane with two continuous passenger decks. The time of the landing of the A 380 could not be foreseen exactly. This acknowledgement underlines the incalculability of such an event. It out rules human control and can lead to the metaphysical sphere where human ratio is transcended and makes room for spiritual or even religious experiences.

Keywords: A 380; Frankfurt International Airport; human control; religious experiences
