Berlin's airport project delays shame Germans

In this March 14, 2013 photo, two men walk to the main terminal of the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport (BER) named Willy-Brandt-Flughafen in Schoenefeld near Berlin. Willy Brandt International Airport, named for Germany's famed Cold War leader, was supposed to have been up and running in late 2011, a sign of Berlin's transformation from Cold War confrontation line to world class capital of Europe's economic powerhouse. Instead it has become a symbol of how, even for this technological titan, things can go horribly wrong. After four publicly announced delays, officials acknowledged the airport won't be ready by the latest target: October 2013. To spare themselves further embarrassment, officials have refused to set a new opening date. (AP Photo/Markus Schreiber)
