|The "Pope's Revenge"|
TALES FROM THE CRYPT
|Tempelhof Central Airport (TCA)|
The Americans rebuilt TCA after WWII and concentrated restoration efforts on the ground and upper floors of the central buildings and hangar areas that comprised the wings of the stylized eagle. Areas below ground, some heavily damaged during the final days of the Reich, were the last renovated, and “renovation” meant ensuring structural integrity and only remodeling o provide temporary space. As offices abandoned the lower floors for newer renovated space on the upper floors, much of those empty spaces went unoccupied; a labyrinth of empty offices connected by a long hallway with steel bulkheads every few hundred feet.
