Planes crossing through Spanish air space have been found to be the wettest in Europe.

Meteorologists and air traffic controllers have been measuring precipitation in the vicinity of planes in recent years, and have observed that most rain in Spain is directed at planes.

"Bigger planes attract more rain, as the effect is due to disturbances in cloud formation," say the meteorologists, "and rain clouds really like aircraft metal."

"That's probably why open-top tourist planes have never really caught on in Spain," said a spokesman from Alicante airport.

Due to the increasing numbers of wet flights in the sky, many ground areas of Spain have become arid plains. Spanish authorities are planning to build more airports on these dry, arid plains.

"If we can park hundreds of planes there, this might attract more rain," said the Mayor of Zaragoza. "We look forward to a time when, at last, the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plains."
