  2. This video is of a flight from Wanaka to Milford Sound in winter, as viewed from the front seat next to the pilot. It passes Lake Wanaka and the Treble Cone ski area, goes up the Matukituki Valley, past Mt Aspiring and the Olivine Ice plateau, over a wilderness of snowcapped peaks and forested valleys, before entering Milford Sound from the sea and landing at the tiny airstrip at the other end.
