Katrina Aerial Video

Rocketboom has some great footage from a helicopter that lasts about 10 minutes. As the chopper flys around the city in the industrial canal area you hear the pilot and the passenger(s) comment on what they see and the people they are spotting on rooftops. They contact the Coast Guard Helo on the area and give it coordinates for the people.

Then they spot a Huey Chopper picking up some people on a roof. But the chopper isn't hoisting them up on a wire like the other video you may have seen. The pilot is literally hover balancing the craft on the roof while the stranded victims climb aboard.
