This Site is dedicated to all those families of the people that have tragically disappeared on flights in and around New Zealand. I  only hope that from all the effort in building this site and from all the effort of those taking part in this venture, that it will bear fruit in bringing ‘closure’ to their memories!

Along with Joan Dighton/Robinson’s description of this tunnel’s location, the following witness gives us further clues:

David Black 1955>:One particular structure which fascinated me was a large underground garage we called the “tank shelter”. This was entered through a large vehicle sized door which faced west and was around the back of the hill, further than the tennis court and below that level. It was hard to find, being cut into the hill and the area outside the door was overgrown with flannel weed. The road to it must have come from the tennis court area, but I recall that I could never satisfactorily work out a connection to the existing roading system. I think this is why we thought it had been used by tracked vehicles. The floor was greasy dirt, and there were signs which led us to believe it was used for maintenance.”

Let me take you on a photo history tour:
