This tower is one of five towers, standing in the city as a testimony to the RAF maintenance base, which operated here in the 1940s. The tower stands on four pillars built of "silicate" bricks.
According to the map of the British camp, this tower was erected near the west fence of the camp, about two hundred meters from one of the main entrances. Nearby was a residential complex for the Air Force staff, a plaza, soldiers’ service buildings (dining room, toilet, laundry room, etc.) and a residential tent. From the tower you could see the railroad and the way to Petah Tikva.
