Close Call - De Havilland Beaver Plane Crash at Lake Hood

This is a video of the Dehavilland beaver plane crash at Lake Hood in Anchorage AK, on June 7, 2009.

Quote from the videographer;
My father and I were videotaping planes at Lake Hood taking off and landing when the wind kicked up and sent the Beaver taking off right at us. The wing was less than 5 feet over our heads, and the radial engine was less than 8 feet to my left. No exaggeration!! The Slow motion at the end gives a little better look at how close it was.
