Time lapse movie: Helicopter assembling a spire

Recommended Posts

I took this time-lapse movie a couple of weeks ago. It shows a helicopter assembling the spire atop the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago.

The final (and unfortunately, official) height of the building when the chopper is done is 1,362 feet, making it the second tallest building in Chicago (behind the Sears Tower [1450 feet]).

There are a couple of times when the helicopter disappears for a while. This is when it's refueling at Midway airport.
