London, UK - London Mayor Boris Johnson's vision of an airport on the Thames were rapidly becoming less of a pipe dream today as the UK's premier transport hub came under threat of being washed away by a huge wall of water creeping from the sodden Thames Valley.
This morning rising flood waters were closing in on the vast airport sprawl which was built in the 1950s on the site of a former landfill dump.
A forecast nine more inches of rain this week could see all five Terminals submerged under the massive deluge as it encroaches on the 13 square kilometre site despite massive sandbagging of the nearby M25 orbital road by the British armed farces.
Commenting on tomorrow's proposed evacuation of the area a City Hole spokesman said Mayor Johnson 'instinctively always knew' he'd see a Thames Airport sometime during his second term of orifice:
"Uh, he just didn't expect it to come so soon!"
