8th Air Force Control Tower

in Dayton 45433 8th Air Force Control Tower

A reproduction of a 1942 standard control tower is located on the museum grounds of Air Park. The control tower served as the flow control center for the American and British forces during World War II. It was typically a two-story structure, with one floor occupied by a weather detachment and the other by the flight controllers. Both areas were responsible for providing weather information and directing takeoffs and landings. The tower also often had a flat roof, which supported a weather observation post and weather recording instruments. You can visit this amazing attraction in National Museum of the U. S. Air Force, 1100 Spaatz St, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH 45433.
