Old Miami Tower


#1

Removal of the old Miami Air Traffic Control Tower began today with the removal of the cab.

Are they planning on saving it? Might make a neat addition to an airport cafe or something!


#3

I’ve got dibs on that satellite dish looking thingy (a technical term)!!!


#4

That cab would make a hell of a decoration in the back yard! (Ebay!?)
Dont they sell sat. dish thingys at Sears?


#5

Heard but not verified it will become part of an artificial reef. Took the photo from an open area just below the cab of the new tower.


#6

Looks like a microwave uplink or interrogator, part of the airport’s remote WX/visibility system?


#7

Exactly what I said…THINGY


#8

Pictures from inside the new tower (showing MIA and the insides of the facility) would be very cool.


#9

The silver dish object is a repeater dish that had sent radar data to Tamiami Tower.


#10

THAT IS WHAT I KEEP SAYING!!! THINGY!!!

I am soooo misunderstood sometimes…


#11

Sorry Pik, you guys often lose me when you start using highly technical lingo!


#12

Very subtle Daniel. :slight_smile:
You’re right though, it WOULD be cool. coughsilverplatecough


#13

It is tough getting pictures in the TRACON due to the darkness, I will work on it. In the mean time check out my pictures of the Miami’s new Air Traffic Control Tower simulator. It is outstanding fun!

I need one of those in my gameroom!!! I can see it now…get the ATC Tower sim, then comes losing my job because I would never leave, then comes the divorce!!! BUT I WOULD STILL HAVE MY SIM!!!


#16

Start building one of those in the basement or garage, and I bet the divorce comes before the job loss!
