Remarks:[1600 PX] You
rarely get to see this Iraqi in
broad day light. What is unusual in this picture is the way the Captain is
seated, or probably someone very close to the window in the flight deck

looking at my pictures and accepting this.
second-tallest Air Traffic Control Tower (after the under construction ATC at New Delhi) with a height
of 83.8 m (275 ft) built
in a section of the parking area opposite terminal 1B. The triangular three
dimensional structure with soft vertices has won the
Hong Kong Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Award for the year 2009. From the new tower, air traffic controllers will
be able to see five miles beyond the
thresholds of both runways. The cost of the fully equipped tower is estimated
at Rs 4 billion.
The structure is likely to be ready for handing over to the Air Traffic Control
sometime in 2013 and is likely to be inaugurated by October 2013 after installation of ATC equipment. (Source: Wiki)
