Lelystad (EHLE) has a very nice one too.

hmm...seems like Lelystad, or that Lelystad on the wall can also be the departure time of a flight to Lelystad, departing from Almere International Big grin

Seattle's new tower sure looks nice (especially from Air Cargo Road).... I'll try to see if there are any pictures online.
