Remarks: The Royal New Zealand Navy's First Seasprite, NZ3601, creates a Wanaka Dust Storm while hovering at Warbirds over Wanaka 2010. The ground crew had to clean the dust from the helo after this sortie on Saturday 03Apr10. Overnight rain virtually eliminated the dust problem on the Sunday. However, the helo's Stbd main wheels sank into a rabbit burrow while being towed, requiring heavy rescue equipment.
