A Visit to the Jobsite

Today we went to see Coy's jobsite!  He is working in the air traffic control tower at the Boise airport.

A very secure place!

At 290 feet tall, it is the tallest building in Idaho!

Up to the top!  I think we went up 11 stories and then walked up two flights of stairs.

The view from the cab was breath taking!  Pictures don't even do it justice.  They use a really high quality glass so they have really good visibility.  It was neat to see the process of how it all works up there.  Each station is responsible for a plane for only a short time then it is passed off to the next station.  The controllers only work 15 minutes and then they have to take a break, they want their focus to be really good! I would tend to agree!

The boys were of course impressed by Daddy's tractors!!!
