This air traffic control tower is 80 miles away from its airport —

There are no air traffic controllers at London City Airport. In fact, when you fly into this international hub, the people in charge of maintaining the airspace are 80 miles away. The airport is the first in the United Kingdom to introduce a groundbreaking remote digital air traffic control (ATC) center. By 2020, the airport plans to manage its ATC services entirely with a series of cameras and the remote control center. Travel & Leisure
