For those who thought Karachi rain was dangerous, wait until you hear about Islamabad and its model new airport. Sections of the false ceiling on the airport collapsed on Monday after heavy rainfall within the twin cities.
The rainwater poured down from the ceilings above a number of counters, together with immigration, and brought on computer systems and different gear to malfunction.
CAA workers stood by helplessly as components of the ceiling got here crashing down as a result of weight of water.
This is not even the primary time the airport has suffered rain harm. A significant portion of the false ceiling on the airport’s worldwide departure and concourse corridor collapsed throughout a downpour in August 2020.
Twitter had a discipline day with the collapsing ceiling and jokes started pouring in.
Singapore? No, no, that is Islamabad.
Karachi would love some water too.
Perhaps it is a horror story.
ASMR: Islamabad model.
Why repair it when you may have a bucket?
Individuals thanked the Frontier Works Organisation for the free fountains.
And praised the airport for having free showers.
The airport was accomplished in Could 2018 at a value of Rs105 billion. It has two runways — every 12,000 toes lengthy and 150 toes huge, taxiways and aprons for wide-body plane. It is no surprise individuals are irritated — that is some huge cash to spend for ceilings that collapse each time it rains. An inquiry has been ordered into the incident and we hope one thing is completed as a result of that is fairly embarrassing.
