Video: Shadow Takeoff

A late afternoon takeoff from the helipad on the west end of Wickenburg Airport’s ramp. On board with me are three wranglers from the local guest ranch — each on their very first helicopter ride. But the shadow steals the show.

I don’t know why, but the audio didn’t come through on Viddler. I may try to upload it again. For now, you’ll have to be satisfied with the video only.

Update: After fiddling around with the original video and compressing it prior to re-upload, I got the sound to work right. Here’s the good version of the video, with sound.

  1. It’s killing me that I can’t get the audio to work. The wranglers on board were pretty funny when I took off. Will keep working on it and will comment here when I’ve substituted the fixed version here.

  2. Hi Heligal! Thank you so much for sharing this awesome video and for helping me learn WordPress! I’m watching your videos on and just want to thank you so much for helping learn! And now that I know about this site, I’m watching your videos here, as well! Great stuff. I so wish I could learn to fly, but that will have to wait for now. Good luck with all!
