Tower Crane

A large mobile crane hoists the cab for a huge yellow tower crane with workers in the foreground.
The cab is lowered into place atop the tower crane as workers dangle from harnesses. A plane on approach to Sea-Tac is in the background against a cloudy sky.
We watched some of the tower crane assembly for a new small office tower going up at 9th & Thomas.
