Paris airports authority remove all mention of collapsed 2E
Aeroports de Paris (ADP), the state authority in charge of Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport have removed all mention of the tragedy-struck Terminal 2E from their website within a day of the disaster. see www.adp.fr The authority’s website has no news of the disaster but what is extraordinary is their revision of maps of the airport to make it look as if there never was a 2E.
At left the upper of the two maps is the ADP map which for Terminal 2 shows halls A, B, C, D, and F. But no E! It is still shown clearly in the bottom righthand corner of the lower map which is from the World Airports Guide.
The Soviets redid the photographs of officials on the reviewers stand of past May Day parades whenever Stalin had one of his former close colleagues shot. But they were never as quick as this to rewrite history. [Emphasis added.]
Trying to Grok (TTG) then throws in for good measure:
Wow. Paris airports authority remove all mention of collapsed 2E.
I guess they threw it down the Memory Hole. Scary.
Wow indeed. If only it were true, it would make for a great story. This time however? Sadly, No! We would have expected better from the owner of TTG who makes regular references to her time spent in France (and knowledge of French.) As she was either too busy or lazy to look into this urban legend in the making, we figure we should take a look. Is there no mention of the accident on the web? Sadly, No! Has the map been redone as a result of the accident? Only if you look long and hard — and then only on one map. What a strange “rewriting” of history by those crazy French!
The map posted on the web site that shows no Terminal 2E is linked to from this page. Remembering that 2E is new, and that it is on every other map on the web site, it seems more just as likely that this is the result of incompetence (an old map not updated) than “Soviet-style” rewriting of history. The charges as outlined above (and now repeated) are, in any case, patently untrue. (For more attempts to hide this story, see also this memorial ceremony planned.)
