Pearl Harbor's Pacific Aviation Museum dedicates aerological tower on Ford Island

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor has dedicated the aerological tower on Ford Island, which served as flight control center on December 7, 1941, the company said.

The dedication of the tower follows the completion of a USD650,000 restoration.

The newly restored aerological tower, along with the operations building and the air traffic control tower, are referred to as the Ford Island control tower. Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor began a multi-phased project to restore this entire complex. Restoration of the red and white air traffic control center and 158-foot steel water tank tower were completed in 2011.

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor is located on Ford Island, where the first bombs fell during the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
