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!

Here’s a higher definition shot in 1954 showing this track from a different angle.

The mere fact that there is an external track between these two possible entrances shows that these two tunnels don’t have a connecting tunnel - either that or this external route is a shorter one between the two.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the 1957 shot you can see the track forks off and goes over the incline into the old northern gun pit area. It’s a little bit hard to show the detail of these photos due to the limitations of the web, but here’s a closer shot from this photo:

 

 

There are several eyewitness affidavits that may  be referring to this entrance but I’m not sure as the description could just as easily be referring to somewhere else.

The 1958 and 1959 photos - with the benefit of being able to zoom in on the higher resolution examples that I have here - there are still signs of this well used track still being there, even though much of the area is rather overgrown. It is possible that this apparent small entrance leads to the southern door entrance marked “c” shown in the photograph (on page 39) of the remains of the old northern gun pit.
