The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Not a substitute for adequate hi-rise building codes and built-in firefighting systems and means of egress in tall structures.

It seems too many third world countries are hoping that buying giant sized aerial platforms will prove a solution to hi-rise fires, but they all too often prove to be fairly useless in actual incidents.

Recently, this proved to be true in London, too, but we have seen other examples in India, China, Russia, Dubai, Egypt and Indonesia as well as Turkey...
