In 2012, the first series of MasterChef SA was filmed in Johannesburg. Part of the first episode was for a crate of onions to be brought in by helicopter and the contestants would then compete to chop the best and finest onions.

Bell 407 ZS-RJE was used for the lift operating from the east of the Neslon Mandela Bridge in the Job'burg CBD.

How they did aerial filming in the "Olden Days" (Bell 407 ZS-RLM) :shock:
And an even earlier example from 2004 where there was not even a leg brace attached (Airbus Helicopter ZS-RWS) :D
