An A380 hitting the Preat Pyramid in Egypt would do very little
damage to the structure and the Pyramid would not collapse. Man made
as well.....................

This video shows that after 128 metres of steel floors are done they'll begin to start the spire work. Which means that it will start after tier 22 begun. Somewhere around 715 metres of height is constructed, the spire work will begin.
well thats about right. i was told roof no4 is highest crane will go. this is tier22 or lev186 /701m. This means the cranes will only need 1 more x10m increase. (they rise 10m each time ive noticed.)
The "pinnacle" starts at current height (tier20B or 14steel section) but wont start being asemlbed until there is enough spire segments built, thus the reason why it wont start until tier22 is reached.
should be interesting to see them telecope the pinnacle slowly up through the steel segments.
