Slice of life

A Royal New Zealand Air Force twin-engine medium-utility NH90 helicopter flew into Gore last Wednesday on its tour around Otago and Southland schools on a defence force recruitment drive and display. Evelyn Thorn spoke to two St Mary’s School pupils about what they enjoyed best on the day.

Oliver Sittithavron, 9 ... "I liked seeing the helicopter land and listening to the people talk about it."

Iyla Mantell, 10 ... "I really enjoyed looking inside and seeing everything in the helicopter."
