Gravel on ‘The Nut’
13 October 2016
On Saturday the 8th of October there was a special delivery to the top of the Nut in Stanley. The current upgrade of the walking tracks around the top has required the lifting of over 100 bags (each weighing 800kg!). Our pilot Tim flew the majority of the day with trips backwards and forwards from the depot situated near the showgrounds to the drop sites at the top of the Nut. Ground crew from Osborne Aviation and Parks and Wildlife were up the top to guide the pilot, organise back-loads (all the straps have to get back down) and keep the public at a safe distance.
