Help? "Erebus The Aftermath" TV Film

Wed Jan 06, 2016 5:13 am

I am wondering if there are any New Zealand, Australian or UK members, that my have recorded this television 2 part mini series when it screened in the late 1980's?

It was a NZ made docu-drama starring English actor Frank Findlay as Justice Peter Mahon as Royal Commissioner into the loss of Air NZ flight TE109 - the DC10 which flew into Mt Erebus in the Antarctic. Sadly my VHS copy is practically shredded and I would like to get a newer version.

I have recently discovered that Air New Zealand allowed this programme to air "ONCE ONLY" in the three countries mentioned, and that any breech of this condition would result in civil action. Possibly the same reason that one of the 'Air Crash Investigation' shows had had to hold back a programme on the same topic?

I am prepared to pay anyone for their time copying to dvd, plus postage to Sydney Australia.

Anyone who can help, I'd very very grateful.

Cheers,

John

Yes thankyou TheFlyingDisk - That is the movie.

I see it has recently been uploaded - so I can guarantee it will not be there long! I believe ANZ look out for it popping up, and it seems to disappear no matter who has posted it!

Why was the US official being evasive in that video at 1.13 onwards, not wanting the attorney? to interview some guys at their Antarctica base.

Interesting, I just watched that. There has been a lot of controversy around that flight!
I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!

I keep getting the pop-up in the lower right corner from my Kasperski Security telling me that Google is trying to access me and it tells me to hit the "disconnect" bar on the pop-up immediately.

I too would be interested in why the US Lt Col was so reluctant to let Mahon interview anyone of their forces. Was that ever determined/followed up?

Anyone know why that episode never happened last year? I wonder if NZ took legal action?

Yet they allowed them to make one about the A320 test flight in France? It does seem weird, not as much as the training flight on an DC-8 that they crashed at AKL they had done well to make sure you barely ever find anything about.

My understanding is there are sovereignty issues that the US doesn't want to entangle themselves in. NZ claims part of Antarctica where McMurdo and the Amundsen-Scott Base are located as their territory. The US does not recognize the claim and refers any law enforcement issues among its citizens there to the US Marshalls Office. Also any US military anywhere in the world they are stationed are to tried by the military in a court martial, not local courts. That's part of the base agreement for US overseas bases. Since we don't recognize NZ's claim a base agreement with them for our troops there is not possible. By definition that would legitimize their claim that no other nation recognizes and probably put us in violation of the Antarctic Treaty by recognizing their claim.

Hypothetically say we extend them that courtesy. Worst case scenario after interviewing them NZ authorities say they need to be taken into custody over some violation of NZ ATC rules. We refuse to cooperate and NZ searches at gunpoint every plane coming back at Christchurch for them. Unlikely but that's probably why it isn't going to happen there or anywhere in case those men ever travelled to NZ again. They could find themselves arrested at the airport for what the US does not consider a crime under US military or civilian ATC rules.

There was a scientist who died about 15 years ago at Amundsen-Scott after drinking methanol. The US believes it was an accidental death. NZ media called it the South Pole murder. The US wasn't going to turn any of their citizens over to NZ even if they believed there was a crime. They'd have the US Marshalls and Federal courts handle things instead. Turning them over to NZ could potentially lead to a politically motivated trial to legitimize their territorial claim. Unfortunately TE 901 became political and ultimately that claimed another victim in Justice Mahon. The US isn’t interested in opening that can of worms.
