Great postprocessing and good note, but how did you get the permission to enter the tower?

Default To markogts: Tower permission

Hi Marko,

The kind colleagues of the Operations department gave me the opportunity to visit the tower. Myself being part of the Marketing & Communications department.

The view is, as you would imagine, excellent from up there. I was there once before but without a camera at that time. They explained some things about flight routes and how they pass on planes to the national ATC agency (if I remember correctly). Rotterdam Airport's ATC is responsible for the air traffic in the direct surroundings of the airport. Very *VERY* fascinating area of work to me.

I've been also told that the ATC tower of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (about 45 km north east from this point) can be seen on a very clear day!

thanks for your critique,
Gilbert
