Travellers at Munich Airport might be forgiven for mistaking Smokey Joe’s for an airplane. The currywurst stand, which sits in between two terminals, is actually made from real airplane parts.
Known as the “sausage plane,” the cart serves up red or white curry sausages in Munich, Berlin, or Ruhr styles, along with soft drinks and beers. The base of the stand is an old aluminum caravan with airplane wings and an engine attached to it. Various tubes and even a fake cockpit make the cart look like a very strange airplane. What makes it especially popular with airplane aficionados is the Pratt & Whitney R-1340 (Wasp) radial propeller engine attached to the restaurant.
Various little signs can be found around the exterior of the “plane” with information on the parts and the restaurant.
