It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that you shouldn’t set up a landfill next to an airport but that’s exactly what the Lebanese authorities did with the Costa Brava. After realizing what they’ve done and instead of closing the landfill, they deployed bird-scaring devices and cars to prevent any collisions at low altitudes with the planes.
Needless to say, their plan didn’t work and birds are growing in numbers and posing a bigger threat now. They even released a new study (more wasted money) for that matter.
The concerned ministries should act swiftly and close down this hazardous landfill once and for all but I wouldn’t be surprised, given past experiences, if they decide to deploy further bird-scaring devices or organize a hunting tournament every weekend to get rid of the birds LOL!
