Raw audio of a helicopter taking off from a nearby field hidden behind some trees, hovering for a moment above the trees (with the sound no longer muffled), before flying away from the recorder. The helicopter was roughly 100 meters away.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder" on 8th October 2017.
