The new LHR tower when completed hopefully early next year should be impressive, at least compared to the old one!

Have a feeling everyone's gonna stump for their locals here, so I'll keep the trend going...

I've always liked JFK's tower because it somehow reminds me of the bridge of a ship, especially positioned where it is, out front of a terminal. Makes it look like the whole airport's going somewhere.

I also like EWR's old toothbrush tower, that thing was a classic:

btw, is it just me or does SYD's tower look like some sort of amusement park ride??

At the bus station, buses stop. At the train station, trains stop. At my desk, I have a work station.
