Bomb found at Schiphol airport

Recommended Posts

An old WW2 aircraft bomb, probably fused for explosion, was just found near the 36L-18R runway at Schiphol airport, causing disruption of air traffic.It is feared the device may be sensitive to vibrations from aircraft landing or taking off so the runway is closed until it can be removed.From 0600 local today the runway is closed, only 2 instead of 3 runways will be used until the bomb has been cleared which will likely take most of the day.
