Text:Our Sydney Mardi Gras video features Air New Zealand's Pink Flight landing and lots of Parade hotness! With much laughter, applause, excitement, anticipation and - yes - pillow fights, we filmed inside the Pink Flight as it touched down at Sydney Airport. Happy Mardi Gras! This year's Parade had a Nations United theme, with every continent inspiring a section of floats and marchers. But once again, there was no New Zealand float. We wonder if any Kiwis could get a one organised for next year's Mardi Gras? Let's show those Aussies how it's done. We shot this video ourselves, as the Mardi Gras crew kindly let us in front of the Parade barriers. And thanks to the editing expertise of Dan News, we've ended up with a cool YouTube video to show you… take a look below. Matt Akersten - 13th March 2009
