Wow, you were quite close here then :-) The airport is only about a
(swedish) mile from where I live (==10km).

We use 3-phase power here. All phases are 220V to neutral, but between
them there are 380V. So, in the wall there are 220V, but for things like
stoves, washing machines, saunas etc... there are 380V.

Actually, I think it's 230/410 these days, they changed it some 15 years ago.
