One of the best shots so far,helicopters always give the best perspective.

You can see the true enormity of this beast

Thanks

P.S What is the official height now?.It would also be interesting to see one of CULWULLA's diagrams showing the Sky Tree as it stands now Vs the CN Tower and Canton Tower.


P.P.S It also looks likely that the Shanghai World Financial Trade Center will hold the title for highest OB Deck (for a while longer).Being that the Sky Tree will be 450m and Canton is 454m.

It's currently at approx 559m, so that puts it above the CN tower by 6 metres but still under Canton which stands at 600m.

Wow, that is really impressive... And seems like it was only yesterday that the Sky Tree was still at its base!

This is a mind-boggling structure, yet I think the base should have been wider and the observation deck should have been higher up towards the top. This certainly makes the Tokyo skyline look a million times more interesting.

You have to remember that Godzilla is only a hundred meters tall. Even for him this structure will be huge! Basically, for Godzilla, the Sky Tree will be as tall as a 5-story building is for a human.
