HTS S-64 Skycrane Water Fill Up

Ever wonder what it's like to be in a full on hurricane? Stand near a S-64 Skycrane helicopter as it fills it's tanks with pond water. Takes about a minute and a half to do, longest minute and a half ever.
Several helicopters used a small pond at a golf course in La Canada to fill up with water to fight the stubborn Station fire.
