Admit it. You’ve never wondered this before. But now you kind of do. Believe it or not, the United States has some of the tallest air traffic control towers in the world–but the USA does not ultimately come out on top.
Air traffic control towers are tall. When I got to stand on top of one at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, it was both exhilarating and terrifying.
The third tallest tower, not taken into account in this graphic, is Atlanta’s. Which isn’t surprising given Atlanta was 2015’s busiest airport.
- Kuala Lumpur
- Guangzhou Baiyun
- Abu Dhabi
How many of these airports have you been to?
