How sad, tragic and scary. We were there for 3 hours Friday afternoon, gate E24. Very uncrowded, all gates past ours were idle. It was really a beautiful terminal. Soaring roof with lots of lights and ac vents. Strangely warm though. I wondered if they were having some problems with the ac handling such a vast space. Not particularly hot outside.

This is the new AF terminal. According to CNN.com http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/europe...pse/index.html 6 were killed, 3 seriously injured. French media is reporting that 3 of the 6 killed were policemen. It happened in a check-in area of the concourse.

There were people going to Prague and arriving from Newark and Johannesburg present. The police was already clearing the area however, because cracks in the walls have been noticed. Most likely this is a due to a construction fault.
