Gregg and Southern Lakes pilot Rob prepare for take-off
Gregg Nations, a co-producer and script co-ordinater from the popular TV series “LOST”, took a ‘Middle Earth’ tour with Red Carpet Tours last month. The weather was great and there were many highlights, but the one that left Gregg speechless was the breathtaking views from a spectacular helicopter flight over the Dead Marshes, Norwest Lakes and mountains!
The flight is a “must do” for all who take a Red Carpet Tour ! 2011 is shaping up to be an exciting time to be in New Zealand. Wellington will be buzzing with teams of people involved at the Miramar studios, while camera crews will be in action at various locations. You never know who you might bump into !

  1. I was on this tour with Greg. He had a blast & so did I!! I am already saving to go back as soon as possible. I was thrilled to learn he worked on “LOST” We had a great time, Greg is a great guy & definately earned this vacation..I miss his laugh…

    Manapouri is a great place for a Red Carpet Lord of the Rings Flight.
    We hope the Hobbit crew gets down here again, but then there was a Hush Hush flight to Mt Titiroa that rumor has it was Movie realated. Could it be because it is a Lonely Mountain with photogenic formations (as seen on youtube).
