I know the tallest in the US is Denver's, and the tallest in Canada is YYZ's, but I don't know the tallest in the world. Sorry.

Please, be more specific. The control tower of OSL/ENGM is 91 meter/298.5 feet AGL, and it is the 3rd tallest tower in Europe - after Munich and Amsterdam.

KDIA Control Tower 327 feet/99.7 meter AGL
CYYZ New (1999) Control Tower 65 meter/213 feet AGL
KIAH New (1997) Control Tower 334 feet/101.8 meter AGL
What about the new control tower for Orlando International Airport KMCO? 349 feet AGL - opens in 2002. Anyone higher?

Your right Mas777, in addition to having the world's tallest building (the Petronas Twin Towers 1483 feet/451.9 meter) you also have until now the tallest Control Tower 130 meter/425 feet AGL - congratulation. Anyone higher?

What about the CN Tower in Toronto? As far as I know there is a little airfield right underneath it, so it MUST be a 400m-control tower....
