Even on an airfield you can find some technical delicacies.

Here an aircraft system tractor of type Goldhofer AST 1 F 600 and its daily promenade: the apron of Frankfurt Airport.

The aircraft tractor handles 17,000 operations per month, an impressive number. Each time the tractor lifts between 30 and 50 tons which means it picks up a whole airplane. What must technology be able to do to ensure that no operation goes wrong i.e. what are the conditions for controlling this technology?

To put you into the mood (sorry only in German):
