    Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
    So lets take a closer look at the famous follow me car itself. From the outside it definitely stands out with its black and yellow checkered paint job. That‘s the primary reason, to stand out from all other ground vehicles. On the roof you have a set of antennas to receive data link messages and to be able to communicate on all airport frequencies. Then the large infamous „Follow me“ sign which the driver controls from his dashboard and another feature you‘ll see in minute. Some follow me cars have extra bright lights mounted on their roof or bonnet to light up the taxiway or runway during night time operation.
    Inside the car, the dashboard with the associated switches. A traffic screen to send and receive messages from dispatch and the mentioned radio to listen to given clearances. Besides standard safety equipment like a fire extinguisher, first aid kit etc. the car comes with an extra set of wheel chocks and these handheld wands, but more about in a minute.
    But the primary purpose for what the Follow-Me car is best known for is of course, hence the name „Follow me“. So guiding airplanes around the apron and the taxiways, to or from active runways. If a Follow-Me car is requested upon landing, the driver, who is called a marshaller, will be notified by one of the air traffic controllers in the tower, either on a separate radio frequency or via data link messaging to his monitor. Once he receives and confirms the order, he positions his car where the arriving cockpit crew can see it best once they exit the runway. Then monitors the active ground frequency and waits for you to receive your taxi clearance. Once you’ve read back your clearance only then will the driver turn on his beacon and the “Follow me” sign and expects you to keep up with him and match his speed. Some of the of Follow me signs have arrows which will flash up once the driver uses his indicator, signaling the pilot that a turn can be expected and second now. Some also have a trigger in the handbrake, switching the follow me instructions to Stop!
    But see more in the video ...
    Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
    Wishing you all the best!

Hi thanks for this explonation. I thought also, that there on some airports the green light on the mittle of the Taxyway can guide the aircraft. I also dind't exprected that followmecar still operate. My thought was, becouse of the modern EFB with live positioning etc, is no really need it.

I had my two firsts as a passenger in Munich airport, I not only experienced my first known ILS CAT II approach on a very foggy morning, the runway could not be seen until we were almost touching the ground and the runway lights only a few seconds before. Since I was sitting near the front, I noticed that when we were taxying and making a wide turn, that there was a car with yellow flashing lights that we were following. We only could make out that it was a follow-me car once we got closer to the terminal where there was more ambient lighting. But was a big treat for an aviation nerd like me!

weird nitpick, but the U2 is actually strangely enough still in use today. IDK what the airforce does with it, as its job was replaced long ago, but I guess sometimes you still need a 500 MPH plane to get the job done.

My tenth (or around there) birthday we did a "behind the scenes" tour at our local airport (Hamburg, Germany, fairly small). The guide said "and those are the follow me cars. Usually they drive far enough ahead for the pilot to see them. We use the Busses (VW T4 at the time), because their size gives some resonance for a loud crunch when the plane wheel hits us, so the pilots know to back off a bit."
