Air New Zealand TE 901

Sat Nov 28, 2020 10:26 am

Today is 41 years since Air New Zealand lost their DC-10 at Mount Erebus, Antarctica. 257 passengers and crew perished.

Some of us still remember friends and relatives who were on that 'once in a lifetime' pleasure flight.

Today is also 33 years since SA295 crashed into the Indian Ocean off Mauritius killing all aboard.

My wife was working in SAA flight ops at the time and lost many good friends in the crew.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Disgraceful scandal that Air New Zealand not only changed the route in the INS the night before which caused the flight to be off course without the crew knowing, but then destroyed evidence and lied to frame the dead pilots. The judge in the second enquiry called it “an orchestrated litany of lies”. When we see what a good culture exists in NZ today under Jacinda Ardern, it’s hard to imagine such things happening at the national carrier.
