Berlin's Historic Airport Set To Close
In a move to centralize Germany's airports amid a financial depression, the lightly-used Tempelhof Airport in Berlin's center will close this October. The world's oldest airport, Tempelhof became a Cold War legend as the primary American airport in the Berlin Airlift. Architects are already arguing about what to do with the massive complex; some favor a central park while others eye more outlandish schemes.
