A birds eye view of the 1000 foot Mesabi Miner arrival shows the tremendous size of these giant lakers.

  2. Sorry, I added the gull sound rather then the constant sound of the props on the copter. I'm afraid you wouldn't hear anything else.

  3. The copter sounds like a swarm of Africanized bees at the end there. I like the gulls. What kind of copter do you use?

    Magnificent. Many years ago (I was using a regular 8mm movie camera), I put the camera on the bow as it went outbound through the canal and held it still, never moving the camera until the stern went by. It takes FOREVER and it was "only" an 800-footer.
