Two helicopter pilots are dropping 10,000 plastic Easter eggs at Highlander Park on Saturday.
The plastic, pastel eggs are loaded with prizes and ready to go airborne. All 10,000 snap-tight Sunny Bunny Easter Eggs, which are specifically designed for helicopter drops, were driven over in boxes to Tampa Bay Aviation in Clearwater on Monday, says Angel Trueblood, a new Dunedin employee organizing her first city event. The next time those eggs will see Dunedin is on the descent of a 20-foot free-fall over Highlander Park on Saturday. And the city has so many eggs, they wouldn't all fit into the single Robinson R22 helicopter they rented for $300, says Trueblood. The pilot would have had to make several trips. To prevent delays, they allotted another $600 for a slightly bigger Robinson R44. This way, both helicopters can arrive in …
