    [Corion]: Whee! Germanys Grand Central Airport (for Berlin, re-scheduled for the thrid or fourth time, to open now in 2018) has just fired their technical lead
    [ambrus]: Corion: Is their budget estimate four times the initial estimate yet? Was the construction late by six months already three months after they started?
    [marto]: I'll believe it when I see it. That's been due for many years now :P
    [marto]: oddly the last time I was there I saw a zeppelin in flight for the first time
    [Corion]: ambrus: I don't know how far the budget estimate has been overrun yet
    [Corion]: marto: Heh ;) No, you were likely at Tegel or Schönefeld, the new one ("BER") will be somewhat outside of Berlin ;)
    [marto]: Corion Schoenfeld, but my friend has been telling me about this new airport for about 7-8 years now :P
    [marto]: I doubt it even exists as a building site :P
