This railing looks like some part of the crane had crashed into it, during the disassembling process.

Yes, this is where they rested the boom tip that was spinning out of control when they were hoisting it down.

Burj Dubai

Imre always writes after date "Burj Dubai". We all know the name of that skyscraper.

- Imre puts the same post in his photo thread where he posts updates on 100 other skyscrapers. He also puts the same posts at a few other forums so the label is appropriate. Also there is newbies coming every day who don't know the name of the BD.

I have now been to Dubai, and all I have to say is: WOW.
None of the pictures I have ever seen from Dubai really give you the same feeling as beeing there yourself. It's an amazing city, and everyone should go there to see it.

Indeed, as you seen in the below photo by Old Town Resident, the cause of this happened by out of control of the crane; and seems that "crashed" a bit into this railing...

Sorry about quality as lense misted up a bit.

Crane cabin was removed and transferred to the L99 crane for final to ground level.

Now when cranes come down, BD will look so much like it should from far distance.
