Sabotaging Germany, Japan & (white) South Africa: The weird story of Berlin’s super-modern, $7 billion, unfinished airport!

[This is a very strange story. How can an airport’s launch be put on hold from 2012 to 2021 or later? How is this possible? If you look at the weird story of internal dissent and all sorts of weird things that pop up, then I can’t help but ask myself if someone is trying to prevent Berlin from having the most modern airport in Europe?

There is another story relating to the Germans that I’ve never put up. It is about the 1950’s and 1960’s when the Germans wanted to build advanced military aircraft and the USA saw to it that these projects failed. The Germans have the technical skill and means to be No 1 in the world in aircraft and pretty much anything else they put their minds to. I think that the USA wants to be militarily dominant on the planet ESPECIALLY with regard to aircraft and that is why anything the Germans do is somehow sabotaged.

I heard about 20 years ago that the Japanese were going to become No 1 in aircraft building in the world. They were going to focus their resources on doing in the aircraft industry what they had achieved in the car industry. But nothing has since happened. I’m convinced that the USA WILL NOT ALLOW ANY KIND OF COMPETITION IN AIRCRAFT AND SPACE ENGINEERING.

In a similar vein, White South Africa, under Apartheid produced the Rooivalk attack helicopter which was cheaper to build than the US Apache and was very close to it in performance. I heard that the USA also went out of its way to stop the Rooivalk from being a success worldwide.

The USA ruthlessly suppresses anyone in the world who can challenge their air superiority. I think this is because this is the key military area where the USA wants no competitors. The only competitor they have is Russia but Russia does not have the engineering and scientific skills of the Germans and the Japanese. Once upon a time South Africa was also doing damned well in that arena.

I think the USA is deliberately keeping Germany and Japan down (ditto for White South Africa).

With regard to this airport. When you see the 101 different niggly little things which seem to constantly creep up and all kinds of weird admin and political nonsense then I think someone is deliberately at work trying to sabotage this airport. (((Somebody))) is at work. Jan]

(CNN) — The grand opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt was slated to take place in June 2012, and the aviation world was ready and waiting.
Thousands of volunteers had been conducting trial runs in the weeks leading up to the big day.
The media were preparing to provide around-the-clock coverage of the event, which would have the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and numerous other VIPs among its guests.
Lufthansa was even bringing one of its newly acquired Airbus A380s for the inaugural flight to Frankfurt.
But then the unexpected happened — the inauguration of Germany‘s new architectural jewel had to be called off at the very last moment due to “technical issues.”
Fast forward nearly six years, and the airport remains closed.
Not a single regular commercial flight has used the state-of-the-art terminal and no official date for the inauguration has yet been provided.
The construction of Berlin Brandenburg Airport continues to be an unmitigated fiasco, made all the more striking by the fact that it’s taken place in a country known for its engineering prowess.

How it all started

After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, it became clear in the early 1990s that the capital of the newly unified Germany was in need of a modern international airport. Planning began.
Berlin’s three airports, a legacy of the city’s troubled 20th-century history, were already showing their age and limitations as the world entered an era of dramatic air traffic growth.
Tempelhof, designated as an airport back in 1923, was the oldest of Berlin’s airports, but despite its impressive architecture and historical significance, it closed in 2008.
This left only former East Berlin airport Schönefeld, a favorite among low-cost airlines, and Tegel, the city’s main international airport by de facto.
However both airports were designed during the Cold War years and are ill-prepared to handle present-day passenger fluxes. As a result, plans were made to build a new airport on a greenfield site adjacent to Schönefeld Airport — with construction beginning in 2006 — and then close down the other two.
It seems this was easier said than done.

What went wrong?

Let’s go back for a moment to that eventful day in May 2012, when the airport’s entry into service was postponed indefinitely.
A faulty fire-protection system design has taken most of the blame. The system devised proved to be extremely complex.
It envisaged that, in the event of a fire, smoke would be pumped downwards, below the terminal’s structure, instead of upwards through the ceiling as per the natural flow of hot air.
But this was hardly the only issue. As time went by, multiple other problems were found such as wiring that overheated, escalators that were too short and serious structural faults in the ceiling, to name just a few.
Ultimately the construction work was found to have fallen short of regulatory requirements, meaning many elements had to be started from scratch.
As if technical issues weren’t enough, the project has been plagued by other challenges including allegations of corruption, the demise of several key contractors and a number of legal disputes around the financing of the project.
It’s estimated that more than $7 billion has already been sunk into the new airport.

Around $7 billion has been spent on the international airport so far.
Political and bureaucratic obstacles may have added to the mess.
With two different German federal states involved in the project, the airport became a wrangling ground for politicians at all levels.
“There was never a central management installed to oversee and properly monitor the project as a whole. So this created an environment where no one knew what the real situation was anymore,” says Andreas Spaeth, a German aviation industry analyst and author.
“It is still very difficult to properly and realistically assess the state of construction progress and remaining items, hence the reluctance of anyone stating any new opening date now.”

Additional issues

Tegel Airport

Tegal Airport is currently operating as the city’s main international airport.
The delayed entry into service is creating a whole new set of issues for German authorities to address, namely the future of Tegel Airport, which continues to operate as Berlin’s main international hub.
Tegel was expected to close down as soon as Brandenburg went into service, but it’s been soldiering on all these years.
The original plan called for the site to be used for a variety of operations, including an innovation and business park.
But this is now under question as local residents voted to keep the airport open in a referendum held on September 24.
And yet, even if the engineering issues are finally resolved, doubts of another nature linger about the longer-term prospects of the airport: Will Berlin ever become the major air center it aspires to be?
Although the city has become a magnet for all sorts of technology-driven and creative industries, it remains the only European capital that’s poorer than the rest of its country.
There’s a growing demand for air travel, but this is mostly for point-to-point services, predominantly served by low-cost airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair. Prospects for higher-yield long-haul traffic remain slim.
In this context, the recent bankruptcy of local carrier Air Berlin is an undeniable setback, even if Lufthansa steps in to partly fill the gap, with its new five-weekly direct service between the German capital and New York.

Is the end in sight?

According to Spaeth, the problem may be structural.
“The expectation that Berlin would be able to establish itself as an international and even intercontinental aviation hub was always utterly unrealistic,” he says.
“There are far too many established and better equipped hubs already, and one main drawback is that the spending power of the population of Berlin is still very low.
“As there is also a very small local business travel market, especially for long-haul, no airline would be able to turn Berlin as a mega hub into a viable business case. There is simply not enough premium-class traffic demand to and from Berlin.”
Perhaps the new airport will be ready just in time to take advantage of the new wave of low cost long-haul carriers that are currently emerging and carve, this way, a market niche for itself.
The German newspaper Tagesspiegel recently reported that Brandenburg might not open until 2021, after a recent inspection identified a range of ongoing problems.
In the meantime, the closest it’s come to a regular day of operations was August 2016, as some 24 commercial flights had the chance to use Berlin Brandenburg’s runways (though not the terminal) while police deactivated unexploded World War II ordnance at Tegel.

    It reminds me of the American subterfuge behind Canada’s Avro Arrow and Britain’s BAC’s TSR2. I have Stephen Hasting’s
    book called, “The murder of TSR II”. There is also videos on both aircraft on Youtube that talks about their sudden demise.

    David Rockefeller talked about a future of “Arrested Development”. The Jews simply do not want the world to progress any further. The only progress we do make is in technology that can be used to track and control us – the ever improving cell phone is a good example. China has built a world class rail system, but we’re still struggling with Amtrak, which is continually being sabotaged.. And the NYC subway is a disaster waiting to happen. But that subway system gives us a peek into the Jewish mind – all that traffic feeds the Jewish Money machine, both in tourism and employees going to and from Jewish business. The Jews treat this Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs like shit while it steals its eggs. That’s the Jew in a nutshell (Jewish nut house)

    speaking of aircraft manufacturer competition, see also; avro arrow. one thing that i have noticed about construction projects, the cost of building the most basic anything, with government involved, has gone through the fucking roof. some incredible bridges were built in my province, early in my life, for 30 million dollars, or less. the cost of a similar bridge today, 1.8 billion dollars, and that’s before the customary budget overruns of anywhere from 30 to 50 percent cost. the jews siphon money off at every possible opening. they strip-mine and clear-cut whole mountains, and then write in the paper, how the goy are destroying the environment, and here’s how they can donate money to help fix the planet. the had a pretend cold-war for 50 years, so they could use the fear of nuclear holocaust to milk both side’s taxpayers for money, to keep from getting shoa’d in a nuclear bbq. they use everything. they always work both ends, and often times, the middle as well. look how much gold and platinum they bilked everyone for, to build that ridiculous junk-science project, the large hardon collider. next to nasa, that’s the second most expensive junk-science project to date. where did that “missing” 3 trillion dollars go? it was declared “missing” from the pentagon on september 10th, 2001. it was front page news. jews literally conjure “money” out of thin air, they don’t need to steal money. a large number of them do need to steal though. kleptomania is a very common jewish mental illness, along with the litany of other mental illnesses that go along with such an incredible level of inbreeding.
