Did the Burj Khalifa also topped out the world's tallest (or highest) fireworks display? This photograph is but amazing!

Direct link to site here: http://www.my-community.com/community/burjkhalifa

If you are an owner or resident in BK you should already have your username & password.

This site looks different to the others though, has more information and a pretty nice set of photo galleries.
Hi Dubai.

Great site - thanks for posting.
