Cool, thanks!

I just hope you don't use the sound from whatever device was used to record the video.

Thank you very much for your answer Pilot !

Thanks much for the video!
Question: When they start the engine, I think I'm hearing 2 separate whines, both increasing in pitch. One seems to start just before the needle jumps off the peg, and the other seems to start just after. Are they the APU increasing RPM and the engine itself? Or are they really one continuous sound and I'm just crazy?

The first is probably the air starter on the engine. It's really high pitched. The second is probably the engine itself lighting off and increasing RPM. That would be between 18-20% Ngg. I should just watch the video and see. I have a slow Internet, though...I'll get back to you.

EDIT: Okay yeah, that first, quick, high-pitched whine is the air starter on the engine. After that it's the engine itself spooling up.

Quality you guys are really putting in the effort well done.

One question from the video looking through the screen is that the gun sight out there on the tip of a rod of some sort on the nose, it looks like a gun sight or perhaps a visual aid for lining up for landing.
