Nice. I was wondering what was going on....
There were short articles in today's and yesterdays papers, so a decent crowd had formed (+/- 250). Bonus for tourists esp. staying in the Queen Victoria, unless they wanted to sleep in, although it wasn't as loud as you might think. Plus the Harbour Ferries are free today until 1pm with free food at every stop courtesy of each nearby restaurant/hotel, so extra bonus. Damn if they would have scheduled it with the TC 10k, imagine the crowd, and carnage if there was a mishap.

OK, now what I'll think you get out of this clip is the fact that I really don't believe lifting things by helicopter is the safest method to go about this. So I grabbed a vantage point that provided a buffer between me and the mangled rotors of a helicopter crash - consisting of one inter-city bus. Now of course, as the helicopter pulls the load clear of snagging in trees, I furtively move slightly away from the bus to get a better shot. My nerves give out at about 1 minute and I end the shoot.
