BROOMFIELD, Colo. (CBS4) – The Federal Aviation Administration has been showing off a brand new control tower in Broomfield.

Folks at the Rocky Mountain Metro Airport cut the ribbon unveiling the new tower on Tuesday. The tower replaces the old one that dates back to 1966.

The FAA says the tower has all the latest technology. It’s also 50 feet higher with more space inside to give controllers a better view of the airfield.
