I like the one at Fort Worth Alliance Airport, the top of it looks like an ice cream cone.

Well, this is the control tower at the domestic airport in Manila, Philippines. Nothing special. Although notice that the tower is actually located on the other side of the terminals (the terminal entrance is behind me), outside of the taxiway and runway limits. The terminal parking lot is next to the tower. Weird huh?




Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

The Singapore Changi Airport tower is designed in the same way in Manila. It's located in the center of the airport, and enclosed by a circular road.

AMS's tower is cool. I like the one at DCA, too.

My vote is the same as Portcolumbus's- Our new tower at CMH is gonna be sweet! It looks awesome already!  Big thumbs up
