"Okay class, now listen up!"
This shot makes me laugh... it looks as though the crane on the left is giving the other cranes some instruction... as if to prove that point, after they were watching/listening to the crane on the left, all four of the cranes on the right turned and started to run down the field, taking flight after only a few quick steps. They were followed by the larger (older?) crane on the left.
