I still prefer "Sears" tower, not Willis tower. I hate how buildings change names depending on who the latest owner/sponsor is.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the site, said the LED-powered light would be activated in the next few months. - - - In the meantime, we just cross our fingers that an airplane doesn't need the warning??????
An antenna can be as much of an architectural component of a building just as much as a spire can be. Judge building height by the roof, not pointy things tacked onto a building. There is no more iconic building in America or the western hemisphere than the Sears Tower.
Uh, I hope a plane is not using visual reference of seeing lightbulb to avoid tower?
Guys... I don't think the LED light their talking about is the warning lights for the tower. I'm sure they'll still have the regular ones like all tall buildings have to warn aircraft. If you read the story again, the LED light is going to light up the tower itself.
jbazan - the Chrysler Building is iconic. The Sears Tower is just tall (an amazing engineering feat true, but it's not iconic)
