UCSF Helicopter Test Flight

Two hospitals in my neighborhood both plan to build a helipad on their roof to transport patients. This draw some very vocal opposition in the neighborhood because they think it will give off terrible noise. UCSF has done the best thing by running a test flight this Sunday. I have taken a shaky video below. This is captured near the new children's playground on Arkansas St using a simple Canon A570 camera.

My camera is not a perfect recording device. But it should give you an impression. I'll add my subjective perception that I find it similar to other helicopters that regularly fly over our sky everyday.
