Nelson fire: Concentration a challenge for chopper pilots

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 8 February 2019

Twenty-two helicopters are fighting the fire, dropping monsoon bucket after monsoon bucket of water on flare-ups and controlling the expanding perimeter. Two of those pilots, Alan and David Beck, have been called in from Taranaki and have been flying for as long as there's been daylight. Morning Report producer Jeremy Wilkinson spoke to Alan Beck on Thursday night.
