The steely forest of Stuttgart

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Stuttgart Airport (in German Flughafen Stuttgart, formerly Flughafen Stuttgart-Echterdingen) (IATA: STR, ICAO: EDDS) is an international airport located approximately 13 km (8.1 mi) (10 km (6.2 mi) in a straight line) south of Stuttgart, Germany.
The airport lies on the boundary between the nearby town of Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Filderstadt and Stuttgart itself. It is the 7th most important airport in Germany and the main airport of the Bundesland Baden-Württemberg with 9,226,546 passengers in 2010.

The airport was built in 1939 to replace Böblingen airport. In 1945, the United States Air Force took over the airport until returning it to German authorities in 1948.
