"Seit seinem Neubau im Erdinger Moos ist der Flughafen München zu einer der größten Luftverkehrsdrehscheiben Europas geworden. Beim Terminal 1 liegt ein dezentrales Konzept mit den Modulen A-E zu Grunde. Durch großzügige Öffnung der Gebäude und Räume wird hier ein Bezug zur Landschaft, zum Himmel und zum Licht geschaffen. Trotz komplexer Bewegungs- und Transportabläufe tragen Übersichtlichkeit und Transparenz der Räume und Raumfolgen zu einem leicht erfassbaren Systemverständnis bei, das dem Fluggast die Orientierung erleichtert."

Vuelo EZY4510 procedente de Madrid. Bien, ya estoy en suelo Berlinés. Pero esta vez no es igual que las ultimas veces. Algo ha cambiado. A toda velocidad por los pasillos de la terminal voy a por mi maleta. En este viaje es una bolsa de deporte con lo justo y necesario para tres dias, de los cuales me sobren seguramente dos y medio. Veo dar vueltas a la cinta pero mi maleta no sale. Me empiezo a poner nervioso. La Polizei se dá cuenta y hablan entre ellos. De reojo y secandome el sudor les miro. Vale, esa es mi maleta. Cogela y sal volando de aqui (y nunca mejor dicho). Segun voy a cruzar las puertas de cristal me agarran el hombro. Un Polizei me pide en un ingles robótico el pasaporte. Intentando no parecer nervioso se lo entrego. Lo abre por la primera pagina y mira la foto. Me mira a mi. Mira la foto...y así un par de veces mas. Le comenta algo a su compañera de rosados mofletes. Esta hace unas comprobaciones via walkie talkie. Despues de unos minutos sin entender nada de lo que se dicen entre ellos, el me devuelve el pasaporte con una extraña sonrisa, que rapidamente entendí sin saber ni una palabra de aleman.

 

Ya fuera de la terminal me enciendo un cigarro y camino deprisa hacia la estacion de tren. Todo está nevado. Que gran sorpresa. No hay nadie alrededor. Solo se escucha el crujir de mis Nike pisando la sal del suelo. Maldito hielo.

 

De lejos veo mi tren. Linea S9, color morado, me lo dejó muy claro mi contacto. No era conveniente que alguien me esperara en el aeropuerto. Debia coger el tren. Salia en menos de un par de minutos. Corriendo como un loco llego jadeando al tren (maldito tabaco) Se cierran las puertas y arranca. Por fin un rato de tranquilidad para poder organizar mis ideas. Mierda, no he comprado el billete. De perdidos al rio, total, este viaje es un suicidio. Lo que menos me puede importar ahora es que me pillen sin billete.

 

En el SMS que me envió el contacto decia que le llamase cuando llevase la mitad del camino del tren, y me iria a buscar a la estacion de Warschauer StraBe. Iba con tiempo de sobra asique me salté el protocolo. Segun llegué a Warschauer directamente fuí al punto de encuentro. Un bajo pegado a una guarderia (de dudosa legalidad por cierto) en nosequé StraBe. Sabia como ir. Estuve una vez aunque era de noche. Me acordaba. Se tarda como unos 10 minutos desde la estación.

 

Cuando llegué estaba demasiado nervioso como para llamar al timbre. Miré el reloj y tenia unos minutos para tomar una Berliner bien fria. Apoyado en la pared intentaba no pensar en nada..cuando de repente, el contacto abrió las cortinas y se asomó a la ventana. Nos vimos. Nos miramos a los ojos...entonces sentí que los tantos mil kilometros y todo lo demas habia merecido la pena.

 

Vivo mi vida como en una pelicula.

Berlin Tempelhof Airport (German: Flughafen Berlin-Tempelhof) (IATA: THF, ICAO: EDDI) was one of the airports in Berlin, Germany. Situated in the south-central Berlin borough of Tempelhof-Schöneberg, the airport ceased operating in 2008 while establishing Berlin Brandenburg Airport as the sole commercial airport for Berlin.

 

Tempelhof was designated as an airport by the Ministry of Transport on 8 October 1923. The old terminal was originally constructed in 1927. In anticipation of increasing air traffic, the Nazi government began a massive reconstruction in the mid-1930s. While it was occasionally cited as the world's oldest operating commercial airport, the title was disputed by several other airports, and is no longer an issue since its closure.

 

Tempelhof was one of Europe's three iconic pre-World War II airports, the others being London's now defunct Croydon Airport and the old Paris – Le Bourget Airport. It acquired a further iconic status as the centre of the Berlin Airlift of 1948-49. One of the airport's most distinctive features is its large, canopy-style roof, which was able to accommodate most contemporary airliners in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s, protecting passengers from the elements. Tempelhof Airport's main building was once among the top 20 largest buildings on earth; in contrast, it formerly had the world's smallest duty-free shop.

 

Tempelhof Airport closed all operations on 30 October 2008, despite the efforts of some protesters to prevent the closure. A non-binding referendum was held on 27 April 2008 against the impending closure but failed due to low voter turnout.

 

Berlin Airlift

On 20 June 1948, Soviet authorities, claiming technical difficulties, halted all traffic by land and by water into or out of the western-controlled sectors of Berlin. The only remaining access routes into the city were three 20 mi (32 km)-wide air corridors across the Soviet Zone of Occupation. Faced with the choice of abandoning the city or attempting to supply its inhabitants with the necessities of life by air, the Western Powers chose the latter course, and for the next eleven months sustained the city's 2½ million residents in one of the greatest feats in aviation history.

 

Operation Vittles, as the airlift was unofficially named, began on 26 June when USAF Douglas C-47 Skytrains carried 80 tons of food into Tempelhof, far less than the estimated 4,500 tons of food, coal and other essential supplies needed daily to maintain a minimum level of existence. But this force was soon augmented by United States Navy and Royal Air Force cargo aircraft, as well as British European Airways (BEA) and many of Britain's fledgling wholly privately owned, independent airlines. The latter included the late Sir Freddie Laker's Air Charter, Eagle Aviation and Skyways. On 15 October 1948, to promote increased safety and cooperation between the separate US and British airlift efforts, the Allies created a unified command – the Combined Airlift Task Force under Maj. Gen. William H. Tunner, USAF, was established at Tempelhof. To facilitate the command and control, as well as the unloading of aircraft, the USAF 53rd Troop Carrier Squadron was temporarily assigned to Tempelhof.

 

The grass runways usual in Germany until then could not cope with the massive demand, and a subsequently built runway containing perforated steel matting began to crumble under the weight of the USAF's C-54 Skymasters. Hence, American engineers built a new 6,000 ft (1,800 m) runway at Tempelhof between July and September 1948 and another between September and October 1948 to accommodate the expanding requirements of the airlift. The old airport terminal of 1927 was demolished in 1948 in order to create additional space for unloading more planes. The last airlift transport touched down at Tempelhof on 30 September 1949.

 

Tempelhof also became famous as the location of Operation Little Vittles: the dropping of candy to children living near the airport. The original Candy Bomber, Gail Halvorsen noticed children lingering near the fence line of the airport and wanted to share something with them. He eventually started dropping candy by parachute just before landing. His efforts were expanded by other pilots and eventually became a part of legend in the city of Berlin.
