Are they going to build any more steel sections higher than the current one? It looks like they'd better raise that crane or they're out of room :p. Crazy shots recently, thanks again to everyone who's contributing them.

Hi Build.

The top 4 sections are 22A, 22B, 23, and 23A. That wing faces 240 degrees.

Tier 22 has 2 wings facing 120 (facing the crane) and 240 each with 3 sections . Both wings of section 22 are up. Sections 22A and 22B of the wing facing the crane are not up yet probably because they will interfere with the cranes ability to rotate 360 degrees.

Tier 23 has only 1 wing facing 240 with 3 sections. 2 sections are up with section 23B left to be erected.

There is no need for the crane to rise any higher than it is right now. There is only 1 section higher for it to put up (23B). The wings of tiers 24, 25, and 26 are much smaller and will be attached to and jacked with the pinnacle. The wings will be attached while still within reach of the crane then jacked up higher with the pinnacle.

Isn't that attaching a very time-consuming job? I guess it means that they're first attaching tier 26, jacking it up, attaching tier 25 under it (constructing upside-down ), jacking it up, etcetera. Or are that the (6) weekly fases of jacking until it tops out? I'm not going to see it happen before my leave December 20th...

Anyway, thanks for the explaination Fury!

so in simple terms, are the 4 top steel sections currently at their full width or half width??

Thank you guys for saving me. After that, I gave back my account. I don't know the reason, but the moderator said because of "spam". I just wanted to show you an interesting video. That was not an advertisement at all. Well, I will not post for a long while.

You must accustom for it, Its not the first time moderators are moving to far (but yes we have also good and justice ones)

You post movie about bd so that was no spam at all

p.s Thats remind me how hipocrits some of us are. Remember that "sunglases photos" posted by some of ours moderators. That has less to this thread than dominoday video witch burj becouse that was much more interesting that burj reflection in somebodys sunglases. But ofcourse he was no banned for that.

I am sure who ever moderator did it, it was an innocent mistake ... however since the matter was brought to the attention, it was verified (by another moderator) and found the ban was given by mistake, so it was revoked.

"Horsee" - You are most welcomed to participate, and thanks for the contribution on your first post.
