Facinating history here digging them out would be difficult though....

BERLIN - An airport used by hundreds of thousands of tourists and business travellers each year could be sitting on top of thousands of live bombs. Papers among thousands of files captured from the Stasi, the secret police of East Germany, claim tons of live Second World War munitions were buried in concrete bunkers beneath the runways of Schoenefeld Airport in East Berlin.

It is now the main destination for discount airlines, such as Ryanair, and numerous charter companies. Not only did the commissars intern munitions beneath the runways, but also entire Nazi fighter planes, all fueled and fully bombed-up, according to the Stasi.

"They would have stuffed them anywhere they could - there was simply too much stuff to blow up all at once," said Karl-Heinz Eckhardt, a Berlin historian. "There was a warren of massive Nazi bunkers beneath the site of the present airport that would have suited their purposes."

It's an old story but still very interesting. I think some WW2 historians want to dig there. Also, if a gaztown pipeline explode, no wonder what will be the results. This place should be demined.
