Read the Weekend Australian story of my first helicopter landing on Tikopia Island. 


The photos above can be enlarged by clicking on them, the images below cannot, these were taken by me for The Australian newspaper, Paris Match, and Stern magazines and due to the rampant unauthorized use of my Tikopia Island photos these images cannot be displayed on my website in larger versions.
