People could have been forgiven for thinking a plane was towing a helicopter above Palmerston North this morning.
A small aeroplane was seen flying above the city from about 8am, with a helicopter right behind it.
Helipro chief executive Rick Lucas joked that the plane was ''giving the chopper a lift'', but quickly cleared things up.
''It was doing a filming job for Massey's aviation school,'' he said.
''Just filming some promotional footage for them.''
