Hi all.

Hi Sale and Gerald.
I'm just clueing in to what you've been doing the last few days. Exciting stuff.

The top of the pinnacle shot posted at Skyscraperlist is a great angle and another of the clearest long lens shot yet.
1 - not sure if it is yours or Geralds - sorry
2 - I would post it here but not sure if that is OK
I say best angle because some months ago Gerald posted some shots that were the first of the new top platform (besides the shots from others taken from up there) that showed something else up there besides the anemometer and lightning rod. As it wasn't as zoomed in as these I commented thinking it may be a second anemometer. This shot clearly shows it is. So there is the lightning rod on the North axis, an anemometer on the West axis (both in the plan of the current top platform, which I can't post unfortunately), and a second anemometer on the East axis.

Looking forward to your stuff Sale.

Haha, I guessed a long time ago, that either 007 or M:I will make a movie featuring BK.

BESIX is still working on the interiours of the tower. The work of Samsung and Arabtec was completed long back.

Though, according to Besix, not much work is still left for them there.
