Burj Dubai...

...would be a killer scenery piece. Should be interesting to see who comes up with the most accurate and realistic version.

You know it will be done, hopefully someone will do a serious Freeware version for FSX and FS9. I never did look closely at the design to see if it features helipads, but that's a given, right?

DAM.......... that thing is a monster.

Whoever builds it correctly to scale, has alot of work on their hands. But would be cool to fly next to, and at 2,200 feet.

LOL, you know it won't be long before some nut thinks it was made for base jumping, or hang glides off of it. :lol:

I can imagine the ATC chatter already...

Emirates 201, turn right heading 251... Descend and maintain two thousand three hundred feet... Please ignore the crane operator waving at you from slightly ABOVE aircraft altitude... 8O

http://flightsim.com/

Goto "Search Files" in "Files" at the top of the page. Type "Dubai" into the search bar in FS2004 Scenery. About 2nd or 3rd there is the file. Havn't downloaded it yet but i will try.

Cheers,
