My youTube blurb: "Pioneering Wellington rescue pilot Peter Button OBE QGM was killed along with his passengers in his Bell JetRanger ZK-HKF on 20 November 1987 while searching for a prison escapee. These TV news pieces cover the accident, his funeral, the procession of several helicopters over the funeral, and a small snippet about the accident investigation report broadcast in mid-1988.
"This was recorded from New Zealand TV in late 1987 and 1988 by my mother, please excuse any audio or video quality issues due to the age of the tape."
I was hunting for my Top Gun/60 Minutes Tim Wallis tape when I found this, which I had no idea existed. I tacked onto the end a small snippet about the accident report which was inbetween two other news articles I uploaded previously.
