    Maybe the Horrid sacked the Journo and s/he moved on to TV3……. Um, a doctor who thinks patients cant be airlifted at night………

    Hello, why not, there might be a massive world wide powercut and the pilots wont be able to navigate by street lights ?

      We are talking about a helicopter though Arthurs pass and the southern alps from greymouth to Christchurch in the dark with no radar. The pilot would need balls of steel and be very familiar with the route. Quite a risky flight!

        Tiberius most are equipped with night vision and extensive radar /navigation gear, brother was a Paramedic on air ambulance up to last year, those pilots have balls of steel, very very skilled. Sometimes the choppers fly north to nelson if weather is closing over the alps !

          I stand corrected, but there is still no terrain radar on the list, but I didn’t know about the night vision goggles. It would still be a hairy flight.

      What, you mean like gas-lamps?

    That image is of a military helicopter and it’s not designed for carrying sick and wounded. What’s going on?
