Spain built then abandoned an elaborate airport, in yet another instance of Great Recession Gothic.
In some views it merely looks quiet:
For many months the only flights were those of private jets, reportedly including Prince Harry on his way to a boar hunt on land nearby owned by the Duke of Westminster.
And now, the 28,000 sq ft terminal lies empty, where 5million passengers should have been waiting to be whisked away each year...
Built in 2008, it opened fully in 2009 at a total private cost of €1.1billion, and was intendend to serve both Madrid and the Andaluscian coast, each accessible by train in 50 minutes.
