Interior view of the Air Traffic Control Tower at San Francisco International Airport. In the foreground may be seen the panel that controls the lighting on San Francisco's four runways. Controllers here deal only with aircraft within San Francisco's Terminal Manouvering Area (TMA): aircraft overflying the area and those up to 250 nautical miles away are dealt with by regional controllers elsewhere in the tower.
