S-64 Skycrane High Performance Takeoff Gillespie Field

This video is part of the data dump from my cell phone. I grabbed a shot of this Skycrane takeoff last October (2014). Nothing too special about it (that's always a good thing) just an amazing piece of machinery! I called it a high performance take off, I think they were doing some sort of a post maintenance test flight, possibly checking engine power output or something. They certainly were not hanging out withing the height/velocity curve, but then it is a helicopter after all...
