There is sadly no webcam for the BD. Unless Imre or Emaar puts one somewhere.

@Sky Tower
Hey - isn't it about time for a little update on your dubai-website? There Burj Dubai is still stuck at "Level 146 - Height 541.47m"

Do you really think this is public knowledge, accessible via normal internet ports?

I wonder if Burj Dubai can handle a plane or a helicopter crashing it, especially when hit to the upper floors? That's so high that accidents can happen (or terrorist attacks, which is unlikely to happen). Not sure if Dubai "suffers" from fog but i guess the wheather can be bad there too, regardless that it's situated at desert? In a bad wheather one might not see it. The floors from, let's say, 150 are quite thin. I wouldn't like to hear about an accident in which something would hit the tower.

Burj will be above every fog

I guess the concrete part is very very resistant to any kind of "accidents".
With the steel section i m not so sure... remember wtc
