Chronology

25 June 2003

The first half of the terminal is put into service with a week's delay due to security concerns.

23 May 2004, 07:00

A roughly 30 meter long section of the concrete roof collapses falling onto a boarding footway. Just as security forces were evacuating the area after having discoverd cracking in the concrete. The passage then collapses onto service vehicles below. Apparently 4 persons are killed and 3 injured in the incident. The terminal is then evacuated and a number of flights are routed to Orly.

24 May 2004

In the morning judicial and technical probes have been launched to determine the cause and responsibility of the collapse. However by the afternoon, due to the discovery of cracks in the still standing part of the structure, the building is evacuated of all rescue and technical personnel. Technical experts are to determine as quickly as possible wether the entire structure is at risk of collapse.

6 July 2004

Preliminary findings for the administrative inquiry (independent to the legal inquiry) into the cause of the collapse on May 24, 2004 are published by the government.
