And as for 21R whats the story with the mountain on the final path for rwy 21R. Its deadly!
It's a long story. That happened a few million years ago. Probably the same time when the Alps became higher. Many many years later the antique Greece built up a village called Athens. This village grew very fast until it has reached the size it has nowadays. And to keep up to date the humans built an airport, which soon became to small and there was no space to extend. So they built the new Venzielos airport at that place, where a mountain was. They probably didn't want to reduce the mountain, so they placed their runway right in front of it.
End of story.
