Rather funny actually.

It unintentionally went supersonic, causing windows and parts of the walls of the new building to shatter, which delayed the opening of the terminal for four months. 🙁 Kibbitzer on July 4, 2012 at 3:27 pm Awesome! keesje on July 4, 2012 at 7:06 pm I guess the dept and shape of the concrete roof, the smooth concrete square in front of the building and shockwave right in front of the Mirage all worked against the windows.
