Tourists watched from the Trocadero esplanade as the new digital radio antenna was helicoptered up on Tuesday.

The Eiffel Tower company’s president, Jean-François Martins, told The Associated Press that scientific progress is an integral part of the Iron Lady’s 133-year history.

He said “decades after decades, the Eiffel Tower has been a partner for all the radio technology.”

The Eiffel Tower grew from 324 meters (1,063 feet) tall to 330 meters (1,083 feet) now.
