"X-Ray Mega Airport" uses the latest technology to reveal the inner workings of Frankfurt Airport in Germany. The series employs computer-generated imagery to demonstrate what is underneath the surface of a plane, the internal space of a cargo-carrying truck, and even exposes what goes on in the minds of passengers and crew during a flight. The brain waves of a pilot are documented as he attempts to land an aircraft in crosswinds, and engineers are seen working on an Airbus A380's engine. Other episodes include the operations behind movement of luggage, how the conveyor belt system works and how controllers can single out pieces of luggage among thousands.
