Edinburgh airport's £10M air traffic control tower has reached its full height after four months of work. The 57m structure was lifted into position last week using a 75m static tower crane.
Edinburgh Airport's project manager Neil Thomson said: 'We are delighted with the success so far of what is technically a very challenging operation.' The control room will be formed on top of the concrete stem over the next nine months. The tower, being built on the approach road to the airport, will replace a control facility at RAF Turnhouse.
