Overview of my home airport! The size of that new tower is amazing, the range of planes you can see here everyday, too! Note the 'Star Alliance' 772 on the left!

Is that new Tower actualy held by support cables in order not to topple over?
That seems to be very low class engineering!

Well i think the shot and the new tower at heathrow are great, the cables are there due to the high level of crosswinds heathrow experiences and seeing that she is now the most advanced tower in Europe i wouldnt complain!

It seems to be very intelligent engineering. The construction is very economical. Great shot.

Good shot from the air, but LHR has lost its coolness to me. It's an old concrete jungle that's falling apart. Give me AMS anyday.

No lhr is not closing down but baa the owner is under a hostile takeover bid which they are fighting. one of the options was to sell of some of their airports but not close any down!

Having never been to Heathrow before, I find this picture amazing. Lots of activity going on everywhere - foreground and background. I am delighted to see my own country's airline parked at the gate - Air New Zealand B747 400. That tower is impressive!

This new tower is a magnificent achievement in aviation engineering and certanly it can't be called 'a low class engineering'. Considering that LHR is the busiest airport in Europe and one of the busiets in the world, it was almost impossible to block a huge amount of space and begin construction of this tower just near the terminal 3. So that's why the tower was constructed 3 km away from terminal 3 and then moved on special Fagioli trucks (which are also very impressive) across the runway. It was done during the night period, cause it's the only time when runways are empty. So a group of engineers moved a 1000-tonn tower on more than 3 km and placed it just some millimetres from the planed place. This great achievment is worth being respected! Tremendous!!!!!
