Dramatic ATC Audio While in the Pattern at Norwood

Here is a simple video of my pattern practice at Norwood Airport on September 1, 2009.  The video is edited after the flight using the recordings from two small fixed camera sources and an audio source.  The interesting thing about this particular video happens about half way through when a distress call from about 10 miles away comes on the Norwood tower frequency.  Though unrelated to my practice that day, it is interesting to hear it exactly as it happened during my flight.  (The plane in distress landed safely and though the plane had some damage, no one was hurt.)
