Sorry if this has already been covered; I haven't checked in in a while.
Simply incredible. Thankfully I love the design too so size and beauty.

I took a few shots in the marina where the small jets had the smoke turned on. of course - in the hurry - my shutter speed setting had been left from nights before and all pics were totally white as I was payin attention to the great display. dammit.

Emirates then took its striking display across Dubai, circling three of the city’s most iconic landmarks, including the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah.

Flying the Emirates aircraft was a UAE national, Captain Hassan Al Hammadi, Chief Pilot of the B777 fleet, accompanied by Captain Ahmad bin Huzaim and Captain Fali Vajifdar, both UAE nationals.

You see that not every day, except if you're working in an air control tower.

Fans of Burj Khalifa might want to go to their 'real' local IMAX theatre (not the fake digital theatres) and watch Ghost Protocol. Looks like quite a few shots of the Burj were done on IMAX according to this featurette (1080p)

Apparently some critics who saw the IMAX scenes of Burj Khalifa got vertigo.

Another bonus for watching the film in IMAX: is that the opening scene for Batman 3 will be shown...sure to highlight some skyscrapers (like Dark Knight did in Hong Kong on the wide format).
