Fung Shui concerns delay construction crucial weather radar

Found that a bit funny so I can't resist posting it here.

WTF: Fung Shui concerns delay construction crucial weather radar - The Dark Side - the other side of Hong Kong

Today SCMP reports that the construction of a weather radar which helps pilots land safely at our airport in difficult conditions is to be postponed. Why? Because the location is rejected by angry villagers who claim the radar would affect the area’s Fung Shui. The Doppler radar in Tai Lam Chung is currently the only radar in this town capable of monitoring wind changes near the airport in bad weather. This radar is scheduled for breakdown shortly, yet with the villagers’ objection against the proposed new location we could potentially end up not having a decent bad weather radar until 2015.

Modern airliners, advanced ground equipment and bad feng shui, where's Tony Chan!

Just ban MD11 from this airport. Then no need for "difficult to install" equipment.
