Will you still see those "tridents" when the base is fully clad?
I kind of doubt it as the base's steel structure can't be seen either where the cladding is already placed.

I don't think so, unfortunately.

It can't be unseen that they do resemble the old ones. Apparantly, I'm not the only one noticing it and I still think they're beautiful

No, they will not be attached to the top of the mast, more like 1/3 the height.

Semantics! The symbolism is still there which is what I think the poster was implying.

^I think it will be lit within the coming weeks..won't it need to be? I thought I read Alan said the crane will be lit or something after its guyed until the beacon goes on because of something with the FAA

Well stated! Why do so many people on here get caught up in the semantics of a word or statement instead of understanding the meaning of what the individual is stating??!!

I know this isn't a PC thing to say, but I've come to the conclusion that the EarthCams are operated and maintained by retarded baboons.

@AmYx: Since a long time (maybe an hour).

It looks like they are taking glass out by the South side to place on the East side. Why don't they take it directly from the East? An idea anybody?
