The world's tallest air traffic control tower is located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It looks awesome too!

So, why would KUL have the largest tower as it is by far not the biggest airport? What's the use? Same goes for MCO, not the biggest airport, but having the biggest tower?

Kl911,

I'm only making a guess about KUL but it might have the tallest tower for the same reason that the country has the world's tallest building in Petronas Towers. It shows that Malaysia has come of age in the world's economy.

The feminists might call it eveidence of the Bigger Dick syndrome. "Mine is bigger than yours". Malaysia has it bad - first with the Petronas Towers and now this.

FATFlyer,

I thought so, but MCO, same reason? I mean, are those big towers being build because it's necessary , or because they like it big,

KI911: Biggest or tallest? KUL is actually one of the largest airport in the world (land size, not built up area).
