Konrad Adenauer (10+21) 1990-2011

It was an Airbus A310-304, just like the other similar-purposed German aircraft Kurt Schumacher, Hermann Köhl and Theodor Heuss. The Konrad Adenauer had a white livery with the national colours of Germany (Black-Red-Gold) around it and the words "Bundesrepublik Deutschland" (Federal Republic of Germany). In April 2011 it was replaced by an Airbus A340-313 VIP which also carries the name Konrad Adenauer.

In February 2011, the Konrad Adenauer was used to safely evacuate citizens of 15 nations from Libya.

Famous quotes containing the word konrad:

    ... So damn your food and damn your wines,
    Your twisted loaves and twisting vines,
    Your table d’hôte, your à la carte,
    . . . .
    From now on you can keep the lot.
    Take every single thing you’ve got,
    Your land, your wealth, your men, your dames,
    Your dream of independent power,
    And dear old Konrad Adenauer,
    And stick them up your Eiffel Tower.
    Anthony Jay (b. 1930)
