Tempelhof ready for last flight

Tempelhof Airport in Berlin is shutting its doors for good after 85 years, with the departure of the last commercial flight.

The Berlin airport was the hub of the famous airlift which ensured the city survived during the Soviet blockade in the late 1940's.

Tristana Moore reports.
