    Nicosia Airport, Cyrpus. Once the most important airport in Cyprus, business stopped in 1974 when the Turkish invaded. It remains abandoned in no mans land, as no Greeks or Turkish are allowed on the grounds. It was also used by the US during WWII when returning from allied bombings.
    The last commercial airline flights out of Nicosia Airport took place in 1977 under UN Special Authorisation, when three of the remaining Cyprus Airways aircraft stranded there since the 1974 invasion were retrieved by British Airways engineers and flown to London.

    You forgot to address the most important issue: Are there any abandoned kittens running around that Beth can tweet about?

    Judging by the amount of birdshit in the terminal, the cats/kittens must be in the minority there :cash:
