In the not flying, but still very cool basket was the Wellington International Airport Fire Service. Present for the day was one of the airport's Stryker fire trucks, a rescue catamaran and a support vehicle. In addition, another fire truck came over several times during the day to put on a demonstration of their "water dispensing" capabilities [photos below].
This was just one of the many examples were we received assistance of the airport company for the day, which also included provision of all of the safety/security barriers and assistance with setup/take down. Thanks!
