I want to climb to the very top of the Burj Dubai. I wonder if they will arrange special tours for paying tourists.

Hi all.

Nice shot OTR.

You are the envy of everyone here. To sit on your balcony and look at this amazing structure would be a dream come true.

Looks like they have placed the South wing (of 3) of tier 24. At this rate just one or two days to place the other 2 wings and the next stage of jacking should be happening. Will it be to top out ..... ?

Cue Jaws music - dum dum dum dum dum dum ......


Even if it is not to top out it almost surely will put us to 800 meters.

What a fantastic feat in the history of man made structures.

I think my signature says it all .......

I suggested to Malec a while ago to put
his models in Google Earth, but he just ignored me.

His work is amazing.

Some of the models in Google Earth at Dubai are just pure junk.
I'm amazed that the guys (or girls) at Google don't check the
models before they are up for everyone.

Do you know how many "my fantasy tower" models are
on Google Earth? Some are even "in the water".
In fact the Burj Dubai model can be found in a couple of
different locations in Dubai !!! unbelievable...
