About a year ago, I visited the tower at LFPN and had a blast! So this time, i decided to do the same at LFPL :)
Since today was quite gloomy, I decided to call one of the controllers and ask if I could come have a look. I had a little hour long ATC-watching session which was pretty fun!
LFPL (Lognes Emerainville Airport) is a relatively small airport east of Paris with 2 runways and a fairly rudimentary control tower. These small airports are what I love, they are full of passionate people and I find it much more humane and interesting than massive airports.
Anyways, here are the pictures! I tried my best to remove all the possibly private/secret info from the images and I think I removed all private information but if you see anything that seems suspicious in these photos, please send me a DM :)

The atis recorder and transmitter
And last but not least, a view of the west side of the airport…
Thank you very much to all Air Traffic Controllers, you people are wonderful and have my complete respect and admiration!
Thank you for having a look at these photos! Sorry about the iPhone quality…
