Sorry for the delay, I saw the threat title earlier, but have had a really busy day.

This one of the ground control towers at MIA. This was the one located on the fairly new Concourse B. Which has now been demolished to make the new North Terminal or teh AA, A to D as it is also refered to. They tore down B pretty new, C old, and D pretty new to make one log teminal from Concourse A to Concourse D, no fingers any longer on that side. You can see the tower pre demolishon in this photo. Oh and yes we seem to love to put up towers and terminals and tear them down here!

Jorge, I'm disappointed in you.

Craig, here is a PROPER photo of the old ramp tower, with much better surroundings:

Hey Dylan, I saw that one, and though as you say it has much better srroundings, i.e. astern galore, it doesn't show the tower as clearly. But that certainly is a gret photo and brings back a lot of memories.

DC-8 Dude, don't worry about finding your wa around, it's not that difficult. Besides, it like riding a bicycle, once you know how to do it, you'll never forget.

Thought I had broken it, thank God it turned out to be only a sever sprain and strain to the ligaments, may be torn but have to go have an MRI to know for sure. Hurts like a mother, anytime I make any movement. Thanks for asking.
