Old Abilene control tower coming down

ABILENE, Texas - Demolition of the old control tower at Abilene Regional Airport is underway.

The airport's new, much higher tower opened in May of 2012.  Airport Director Don Green said tearing down the old tower was always in the plans for the airport, but the Federal Aviation Administration is just now getting around to it.

Green said the old tower will be completely removed and the area will be restored to grass.
