The Falcon 20E research aircraft is operated by the German Aerospace Center, DLR, primarily for atmospheric research. This twin-engine jet is based on a business aircraft and can fly at altitudes of up to 12,800 metres. The aircraft is pictured here in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, during the ADM-Aeolus measurement campaign.

In the picture are (from left to right) scientists from the DLR Institute of Atmospheric Physics (Christian Lemmerz and Dr Oliver Reitebuch) and the Falcon technician from the DLR Flight Operations Facility (Alexander Wolf) are pictured here during a short stop for refuelling.
