The airport, which is years behind schedule with no opening date yet in sight, has now been hit by a corruption scandal involving head technician Jochen Grossmann, who is accused of demanding a EUR 500,000 bribe from a contracting firm. The airport's governing body is meeting today and has designated a task force to determine whether Grossmnn might have demanded bribes from other companies as well. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
