More than 80 000 visitors attended DLR's Open Day on Sunday at its establishment in the Cologne suburb of Porz. In glorious late summer weather, a fun day was laid on for all the family as DLR got the chance to show its research programme to the public.
See some of great images of the day here from the research institutes, the exhibitions and the aircraft to the childrens' show and some fabulous events on stage.
