PKB thanks undergroundhouse.com for posting this incredible video from January 3,2009 of the Trump Tower Chicago Spire installation via Sikosrky S-61 Rotocraft. If not for the background music and an accosasional bird fly-by, it would look like all action stops on several occasions. What an amazing aircraft. Enjoy the story and the video.
Here's the cameraman's story:
This video shows the last hour of installation of the spire atop the 92-story Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, on Saturday, January 3, 2009. The installation on this day took over 4 hours. I only caught the last part (around 1pm) because I woke up late. This video (sped up 8x) was filmed almost 3 miles away, so unfortunately it's not very clear. At the end of my video, you will see the Sikorsky S-61 helicopter fly by on its way to Midway Airport.
Here's a nice closeup pic from the Chicago Tribune:
