Memphis Air Traffic Control Terminal
Memphis, TN United States | 2010
The Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma had four runway control structures erected in 1990 to replace portable control towers. The control structures are located on each end of all runways at the base, and afford instructors and controllers communication with student pilots during their training.
In 2004, the base needed to construct two additional runway structures, and because of the outstanding performance of the previous galvanized structures, the new structures were identical designs of the 1990 design. Galvanized steel was specified because it requires little maintenance throughout time even in the extreme environment. The galvanized steel and 2 ¾ thick glass panels will be able to withstand the varying weather of the region, as well as the sound and heat emitted from the aircraft. The use of galvanized steel will allow the controllers to have a maintenance-free, comfortable, clear visual vantage point of student pilots for years to come.
