It was reported on Thursday, the 26th of March on the Glen Eden Community Facebook page that helicopters were seen spraying during the night of the 25th and in the early morning of the 26th in west Auckland suburbs. I do not know if this is true or not.
Lesley, a trustworthy source, who lives in the west Auckland suburb of Te Atatu wrote: “People were ringing me from west Auckland only, from Glendene, Massey and Te Atatu…People reported seeing a fine mist caught in the helicopter’s light. I did not see the mist, but messaged NewsTalkZB to ask what was the helicopter up to. It seems that people were convinced something that was being sprayed.” She did not get a reply from the radio station.
One poster in Glendene, which is also in west Auckland, mentioned on the Glen Eden Community page that the helicopter was in the air from 11pm until 3am.
This message was being sent to Americans also and regarded as disinformation according to this article: Helicopters not spraying disinfectant over neighborhoods to stop virus, (March 24, 2020)
John B. of Auckland also mentioned “Early morning truck spraying as well no idea whats in it”
One person commented that she had heard that helicopters had been seen spraying over Nelson and Christchurch, also.
Did anyone witness this occurring that night please? Thank-you in advance.
And as someone who was in an area potentially sprayed, you can ask for information about this from the Civil Aviation Authority. This is the contact page: https://www.aviation.govt.nz/about-us/contact-us/
