gunagzhou tower is like any other tv tower. it has a core with observation/communication turrets at intervals up the tower. it has an external frame which is like guyed wires and a mast /antenna on top. nothing like a skyscraper.

Well wires are not the same as this tubular structure, are they? I mean non-self-standing structures have wires, But this one is a self-standing structure... correct me if I'm wrong, of course.

I'm always facinated by how the word "Skyscraper" has been hijacked to mean only buildings with floors. There is absolutely NOTHING in that word that means multiple floors. The Guangzhou Tower is not a skyscraper but the 120m building accross the river is?

What a world we live in.

Is that an Air China 777-200? That's what it looks like to me.

Looking very good at that height alone. It will look great once finished.
I want to visit that place. I have a chinese friend in Ghuangzhou and I asked her to tour me when I visit the place.

Yeah that is not a good combination, we already observed before how unstable skyscrapers will become when mixed with a plane...
