One week each year, the relatively small Oshkosh Airport has the busiest control tower anywhere with up to 15,000 aircraft visiting. Now there is a much better tower facility and the old one was just demolished.
But couldn’t they have taken a cue from Yankee Stadium and the Berlin Wall where rubble was sold for big bucks? Many GA enthusiasts would pay for a souvenir brick or a piece of glass to frame a view in a house. The EAA could fund Young Eagles programs and Scholarships instead of throwing it in a landfill.
Anyway: Mark your calendars to see General Aviation’s biggest event. Airventure. July 27 to August 2 2009! The new tower is ready for business.
