Aesthetics of a tower

Control Tower at the Oslo Airport - Gardermoen

Control Tower at the Oslo Airport - Gardermoen

I love flying! There is something magical about flying in an aircraft. Yes, I know all the physics like Bernoulli’s principle and all that – but still if the physics is such and such – and my brain understands how an airflow works on an airplane wing, meteorology, procedures during the flight etc., the process of flying is nevertheless wonderfully magical.

I regard the crew on the ground with just as much respect as the men and women that take us on the journey along the airways. Thus I find airport control towers fascinating. The picture here shows the tower at the main airport in Norway – Gardermoen just North of Oslo – taken a couple of weeks ago. I guess what I find appealing about airport control towers is that they often combine aesthetics with functionality.
