What a great tour! Very interesting to see just how massive the Arena is, and how much work has been done on the inside, out of view. It's still "on schedule", tour director and project manager Ben Edwards told us. The seating is basically installed on the top level and they're starting on the bottom level now. I took a lot of pics, which can be viewed at:

and some video, which I will upload later.

Sorry, some of these turned out a little blurry. The lighting is challenging sometimes for me to get pictures just right.

Good pics!

Did you see the trees being planted on the southwest corner of the property? I guess the landscaping
is now underway in a big way.

Both of you were in my tour group.. neat (they split us into two groups)

I'll upload my pictures shortly. I went to dinner and to see Iron Man after the tour so I'm a bit behind.

I added a video to Flickr of the model in the project office, since I hadn't seen anything along that line. Hope it plays..fingers crossed...

They're moving right along with the exterior, but I think it's going to be a couple of months before the stainless steel skin can be called basically completed:

Never thought about all those areas they have to do with scaffolding. That has got to be incredibly slow work.

I'm still looking forward to the opening this Fall. I doubt if I'll be able to get tickets, but I'm relying on you Tulsa citizens to post a good video!
