SCARY: WuFlu Standoff At Airport Sparks International Incident (Video)

Written by Wes Walker on March 20, 2020

Imagine crossing the Atlantic only to find the airport you were landing at had parked trucks across the runway to keep you from landing.

When Ecuador said they would be closing their borders to European countries, one mayor wasn’t playing around.

Here’s helicopter footage of an airport in Ecuador actively blocking their landing strip to keep a plane from Spain from landing at their airport.

They did so on the Mayor’s orders.

Here’s a walk-through of what’s been happening, with several videos.

4) @Iberia flight flew to Quito to land, approximately 50 minutes away. This crew-only, passenger-less @KLM aircraft from Madrid (video below) was also denied landing and diverted to Quito—posing no threat of COVID-19. Travelers will not be able to leave Ecuador for Europe.

6) Ecuador’s Guayaquil Mayor had her people enter an international airport by force in order to send a fleet of vehicles to park down the runway to prevent planes from landing—all in the name of COVID-19 prevention. They made their way in by shoving this security worker.

Let’s hope we figure out a resolution to this sickness soon, so we can all get back to our ordinary lives.
