Obviously there are often airbuses from german gov in Dulles airport. Cooperation, or official visits.

Thr Germans had a Military Air Base here in NOVA just right out in front of the airport. Close now, it was part of a CIA thing. Will tell more later. Also was used in part with OPEN AIR ops.

I use to get free Air hops on there (Luftwaffe) MAC's to Frankfurt and a ride to Ansbach, you can take your car on there hops! The Luftwaffe Airbus would run every day to Iceland and to Mons and Frankfurt, there was a mini bus that would pick you up from Mclean HQ and take you down town DC and Bolling , Andrews and Mead and back to IAD DUC HQ and Dulles on to the plane back to Frankfurt. (Good old Days of free, free, free rides.) JY.
