Destroyed as part of the terminal 2 redevelopment. Trig point was positioned where the road to terminal 3 is now located.

TP11528 The old control tower and the trig point was demolished several years ago.

Construction of new buildings is well advanced, no trace of old building. Bolt would have been a few metres south of the T3 access loop road.
