On September 2, Rocketboom posted 10 minutes of semi-raw footage from a helicopter flying over the deeply-flooded neighborhoods of New Orleans. The footage includes radio chatter, and the longest segment captures a military Huey picking up a group of survivors from a rooftop. The pilots of the various helicopters struggle to establish radio contact and when people on the roofs are spotted find themselves relaying GPS coordinates to ground control in Baton Rouge.
