I'd be more worried about all those mavericks doing an unauthorized flyby

Want!  The views will be excellent.

I don't know NZ building code, but in California, you'd have to add a fire escape. 

I worked on the earthquake retro, of an air traffic control tower.  The rest of the terminal is an office now, but the tower is closed off, because there's only one way in, and out.

That NZ tower sure is plain.  I prefer the Hollywood look:

That farking movie. A huge guy is sucked into the engine and it doesn't crash the plane, during a 20 minute landing strip. And a stream of fire on ice serves a landing strip for a dozen planes? Fark you,Renny Harlin.

Die Hard 3 was good at least.

Is that $100k on top of the price? Still not too bad given that that they implied you could do with it what you want. No "historic" tag. I imagine there will be a back up generator.

Indeed...there was so much wrong with that movie, it was difficult to watch without picking every nuance and detail apart.

It was almost like a bad rewrite of "Airplane!"
