It's so beautiful, it will definitely fit the rest of the spire/tower.

Great to see the last piece finally being raised! Too bad the CBS helicopter has left the scene...

IMHO at least one more jump of white crane should be done in advance to final lift

No, it won't top out today. I saw somewhere it's scheduled for the 6th. (But we can't really know with delays... )

Worth a re-post:

3) Will the beacon (section #17) and section #16 definitely be lifted and placed as one unit, or will they be detached from one another first?

4) Will the last section(s) be lifted directly to the top of the spire, or will it first be staged on the doghouse platform?

5) Will the crane jump again before placing the beacon? We can see from this photo that there are at least four tower mast sections up there:

Snipped from Post 44905

So it looks like two of the questions have been answered: #3 - one unit; #4 - staged first. If everything else I have read is true, then the answer is "yes" for for the other questions.
