This one belongs to NASA. Anyone know what it was doing in Germany?
SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy) is a partnership between NASA and DLR.

Visiting for some scheduled maintenance, NASA/DLR SOFIA 747SP captured at Lufthansa Technik HAM.

I worked on the SOFIA program which created this aircraft. It is in Germany because that is where the telescope mirrors were manufactured , it may be going through refurbishing.
