That theory sounds like a flight of fancy.
 
2021-12-02 5:15:00 PM  
And the Star falls at the first hurdle by using the aerial shot of Berlin Tegel Airport. Typical really.

They wrote an article in a supposed news paper wondering what this building was. Not actually, you know, doing their job by finding out and telling us.

Use? Duh. Hillary's European Child sex slave operation HQ. WTF did you think it was?

Or they did do 5 minutes of research, found some completely mundane and plausible explanation, realized they then had no article beyond, "Look weird place for a house" so they wrote it this way instead

CSB: I was stationed in Giessen Germany, our base was an old Luftwaffe base. The battalion buildings and a number of others were old WWII buildings you could still see the weapons racks in the hallways that were built in to the walls. Around the city there was a lot of SS spires sticking out of the ground and tunnels running to our base from them that were flooded. Rumor was there was an underground motor pool somewhere that blocked off because of traps.

it is surprisingly hard to find info about the house, whatever it is.
 
2021-12-02 5:31:14 PM  
I used to live on an old Luftwaffe base.  There was a Roman bridge within walking distance.  This must mean something?

"Our House, in the middle of our street," does not mean blocking the roadway - something I have to remember to decode this British AF headline.
 
2021-12-02 5:43:28 PM  
It is not in the middle of the runway. It is in the middle of the taxi way.

I'd love to see the real estate listing for that...

"Wide open spaces. Runaway views. Great Parking. Driveway for a Learjet..."

Also, the aerial picture of the runway in the article is not Berlin Schönefeld Airport. It is Berlin Tegel Airport. Good fact checking, Daily Star.

Except nobody took that "newspaper" seriously, whereas all of the UK "newspapers" are like this.

If it's a house in Germany that was built before 1939, there is a chance it was owned or occupied by Nazis.

Shocking.

i don't think it's all of them. just all of the tabloids. and celeb gossip trash tabloids like the daily fail and the sun are just what FARK always links to. for some reason.....

Go on then, list those quality papers. If you get above two with general agreement I'll be amazed.

The red tops are full of shiat and they know it, lowest common denominator. The express, mail and independent are obvious propaganda for whomever the owner currently likes. The telegraph and the guardian are blue and red respectively, regardless of how much nose holding they have to to do. Times and FT really. BBC is good but ultimately is political as it depends on the license fee which is country by the government.

Mock26: It is not in the middle of the runway. It is in the middle of the taxi way.


No, it's in the middle of a greenspace surrounded by taxiways. And 3,000 feet from the nearest runway.

In the U.S. somebody would buy it and then complain about the noise.

For values of "middle of a runway" approaching "between taxiways where buildings and other structures are supposed to farking be."

cleek: it is surprisingly hard to find info about the house, whatever it is.


I didn't look too hard. But I did take a peek at the history section on the airport's website. For some reason the timeline jumps from 1934 to 1946.

Candygram for Mongo: In the U.S. somebody would buy it and then complain about the noise.


When I learned to fly out of PDK in Atlanta it was at the height of a battle with snowflakes who bought their houses next door to an airfield that had been in operation since WWI. It was how I became aware of Neal Boortz, as he was a leader on the side of the pilots and FBOs, long before he went insane.  I knew very few pilots who did not intentionally drag their plane dirty through the downwind using as much throttle as possible.  Noise abatement was almost totally unenforceable and when it came out that big developers were really the ones putting these idiots up to it, game on.

seems most buildings in berlin that date from pre-1930's could be considered former nazi buildings.

The BBC is very much not "controlled" by the government. It was the BBC that revealed that the then Blair government faked the Iraq WMD dossier for example. It is generally seen as left leaning and pro Labour and anti Brexit, though there are exceptions.

You know the government directly appoint 1/3 of the BBC directors, who then appoint the rest, right? I'll grant you, the entertainment side may be seen as left leaning, but the news side is distinctly pro-establishment, and not in the side of the average worker.

I'd quite like to see an updated version of the Cardiff University study that looked into this in all honesty.
