The old air traffic control tower at Cherry Capital Airport came crashing down Friday.
The demolition of the 80-foot tower took place around 8 a.m. and you can check out the changing scenery as it happened. The video was taken from the new air traffic control tower, which has been in use for a couple of years.
The old tower was built in 1975 and had a 20-year life expectancy.
The new tower is much taller at 150-feet, which enables the air traffic controllers to see clearly with no blind spots on the airport.
The new tower also has a new 8,000 square-foot base building which is shared by tech operators and air-traffic personnel.
