English: An air-to-air view of an Aerospatiale SA.330J Puma helicopter operated by the West German Bundesgrenzschutz (BGS, border patrol). The castle in the background is "Burg Hanstein", which was (then) located on an extreme tip of East Germany (German Democratic Republic), with the German-German border running between the Puma helicopter and the castle. After the German unification in 1990 this part of Germany became (again) the State of Thüringen (Thuringia). In 2005 the BGS was renamed "Bundespolizei" (Federal Police).
Deutsch: Ein Aerospatiale SA.330J Puma Helikopter des Westdeutschen (Bundesrepublik Deutschland, BRD) Bundesgrenzschutz. Die Burg im Hintergrund ist die „Burg Hanstein“, die sich damals in Ostdeutschland (Deutsche Demokratischen Republik, DDR) befand. Die deutsch-deutsche Grenze befindet sich also irgendwo zwischen der Flugbahn des Helikopters und der Burg. Nach der Wiedervereinigung Deutschlands wurde dieser Teil Deutschlands Teil von Thüringen, 2005 wurde der Bundesgrenzschutz in Bundespolizei umbenannt.
