There's not going to be a lit beacon...? I don't believe it, they've already tested it multiple times

I wasn't being serious.

I would assume they light the mast and beacon on Sep 11.

Tribute of light must have been a 5 min test, it's off now.

You gotta be freaking kidding me, what more can they possibly f*ck up?

And of course ChiBear says the observation deck wouldn't be a part which is what easily gave it away
