    @JoeCamel a Manitowac 1800 would be used for projects that would take weeks/months being that it’s a crawler crane. They generally take about a week to set up give or take but in an installation like this where the job is done in under a week they would use the AC 500-8. I didn’t discount why you thought that it was but just wanted to give some insight on the subject.

    For an example the Manitowac mentioned I believe (or similar) is being used over at Disney Springs for the third parking garage installation. ;)

    For those who have not seen this yet, it's tall. Looking at it directly from the north or south, it doesn't seem so tall compared to the Eye. But from the east and west directly it's huge. I Love it on the skyline. Now the tallest man made structure in Orlando/Orange County, outside the super-tall antennas in east Orange.

    This will definitely (in combo with the Eye) the new VFR waypoint for flying thru Orlando.

    He does the best coverage of parks construction. Bio and Dan make a great team to keep abreast of the doings in Orlando.

    You know, I look at that new Warner Park in the US and think, "Man, if Six Flags would do that indoor thing here with their Warner and DC rights.
