Spaceship 2 video: things happening fast

Marc commented recently (cozybuilder's list?) that there was only a 2.5 second window in which accidentally unlocking the feather could lead to destruction of the vehicle.  Below is a video with another crew.  It surprised me how fast this test happens.  You will hear an "unlock" call call pretty quickly after the engines fire.  



Gives one an appreciation how the unlock could have occurred too early.

From the pilot's voice you can sense some serious G forces.


What is that huge oval on the ground that appears just after the 0:50 mark?
