Pilatus Porter airplane at the
Plateau Hut, the pre-landslide Mount Cook in the background. I was proud to
have barfed in that plane. I was doing sound from behind the back-most seat.
I could not look out as we dove and circled to get a look at the summit. It
can be really alarming to see
how fast a barf bag fills up.
Seracs on Mount Tasman from the
Plateau Glacier. It was not long after this trip that we decided to call our
company Serac Adventure Films. If we only knew how many we would get to know
John Heiney, Melissa McManus and
jumping above the Tasman Valley.
