On the return trip from IHOP with Tom and Matt, we noticed the crews beginning on the opposite side of the building, so I pulled over across the interstate and snapped photos as the V was hoisted into the air by a beefy helicopter. We then drove to a better viewpoint to watch the O lowered into place. It's interesting to note that the helicopter method is different than the one used when the original name was being mounted, when crews hoisted the letters up the side of the building instead.
The photo is a bit noisy because it's pushing the resolution of my camera at a distance of about half a mile, using a 200mm lens.
