I'm sure the spire on the CN Tower was put in place by a helicopter.

It was only the spire, the rest of the tower was built from the ground up.

http://www.pcap.com/strato3.htm
NOVEMBER 4, 1995: The top of the tower is added making the stratosphere tower at 1149 feet officially the highest building [structure] West of the Mississippi. Police directed traffic away from Las Vegas Blvd while the final section was hoisted to the top of the mast with the help of a very large helicopter after being dedicated and signed by local officials in a ceremony at ground level. Four workers made the final attachment as the helicopter hovered above.
