A mass formation liftoff of CH-53s, a very rare sight even during a WTI exercise. Unfortunately I cannot provide the sound of these amazing helicopters.

I really am impressed by this person's ability to capture the choppers taking off, I imagine it isn't everyday a civilian get a chance like this. -casey

Wide angle to capture all helos in flight; different stages of liftoff; as an ex-53 pilot I can appreciate the challenge in doing a multi-aircraft takeoff.
