White out!: Michael Guy's true account of Air New Zealand's DC-10 crash on Mount Erebus.
On 28 November 1979, an Air New Zealand DC-10 plunged into the side of an active volcano, Mount Erebus, in Antarctic. It was the world's fourth largest aircrash at the time and New Zealand's biggest disaster; 257 people died. Why did Flight 901 disregard minimum safety altitudes? Why did Flight 901 change course without alerting Antarctic Air Traffic Control? Why was Flight 901 not told that their computerised flight-path had been changed? Why was Flight 901 not fully aware of the danger of white-out?
All questions to be covered in this book. Includes recovery personnel and flight crew + passenger lists.
Rare and collectable record of aviation history
