New Zealand’s biggest civil air disaster:
It’s been 38 years and there still isn’t a national memorial for New Zealand’s worst-ever air disaster.
The families of those who perished in the Erebus disaster are pushing for change, calling for a national memorial to be created in time for the 40th anniversary.
In 1979, 257 people died when a sightseeing Air New Zealand flight crashed into Mt Erebus, Antarctica. It remains the worst aviation disaster in the southern hemisphere.
