Two days ago, Shandong Province’s Yantai Airport was completely overwhelmed by floods — the greatest it has ever seen — and was forced to shut down. 45 flights were either cancelled or postponed. Heavy rains started at about 5am in the morning and within half an hour, the waters had risen to about 0.5 metre. This video has some pretty amazing footage of 25 staff pushing an aeroplane — yes, you heard that right — to safe ground. The departure hall of the airport was also completely flooded, and staff had to be deployed to use sandbags to protect the cargo area.
