Comments:

There is a large tower crane near Salt Lake Cty Intl.
the marriot marquee in atlanta seems to be the most detailed building in fsx (i have had to stay there on business trips before many times)
Anyone know why no flight simulator has included the Blackpool Tower, Blackpool, Lancashire, England, UK?

Anyone know why the Great Wall of China isn't present in FSX?
How come there's no Great Wall of Chine in FSX? I tried looking for it near Beijing where it's suppose to be.

"Hey look! the great wall of china" then I crashed.

i landed on the golden gate bridge the people wernt so happy :)
the cn tower is cool

Dubai should have much more skyscrapers, is there addons for cities?
Largest tower is now Burj Dubai:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burj_Dubai
Bytheway: a visit to the restaurant in Berlin's Fernsehturm is highly recommended. The kitchen is excellent and affordable and they will deduct the entree fee of the tower from your bill.
