The Burj Birdmen

Most of you know that the tallest building in the world no longer is the Sears (not Willis) Tower. I guess it hasn't been for a few years now b/c of Malaysia and Taiwan . Leave it to sheiks, shahs, oil, drive and innovation and you've got the Burj Khalifa; better known as the Burj Dubai.
For the Chicagoans out there (or those who know the Chitown landscape), the Burj is taller than the Sears Tower and John Hancock buildings stacked on top of each other.

Well, this well-made little documentary of two really daring birdmen (is that redundant?) is a favorite on Vimeo. Watch it, and you'll know why... Crazy.
