A couple of hours ago the surroundings of the Madrid Barajas airport, have been flooded because one of the pipes of the airport has exploded, for now the North RWY 36L - 18R is closed, because of the danger it can pose to airplanes, there is no human damage, all are well!
•At this time, they are fixing up the surroundings.

Wow. This must’ve cost thousands of dollars in structural damage, and the airport doesn’t look like it will be opened any time soon. I just hope nobody was seriously injured…

I think you’ll be surprised how quick a fairly large team with big $ and a lot of pressure from management can get something done… 😉

I agree. If you really want to know, just google it. Don’t ask if anyone died from something that looks fairly obvious as to no
