at night, there's a strobe on the tip of the candy cane and a red glowing light on the crane..and speaking of airplanes, aircrafts still seem to fly really low over it..sort of defeats the purpose of building an airport 20 MILES away from the city..

i think shes full height? still hard to tell from a photo underneath. better with a side view from afar. but the concrete section below red/white looks full height.
