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!

Mum brought home your book tonight from the library , mightily impressed! definitely spent a few hours there! ( Especially on the Dragonfly !!)

Interesting photos/info of your 5517 search, must of been hugely disappointing not finding anything despite the huge amount of evidence you gathered .Grrrr!!

Anyway , just thought I'd let you know its another good amount of reading for me to do , great job mate!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your book is a great read. Thanks very much.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wanted to tell you, how enjoyable and interesting I have found the book.

The detail and approach you adopt is both fascinating and a credit to you.

It has made me rethink and re focus and I am commencing a re read to highlight some matters and analyse others.

Your research is substantial and while assumptions can themselves lead to wrong directions, they are a validation point to return to time and time again.

Excellent

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your book is wonderful, and I congratulate you on a fine effort.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just finished your book yesterday (My husband finished them both weeks ago) and my-oh-my you've had some adventures.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I obviously got into it straight away, and skimmed through the first 5 chapters about the sighting reports, keen to get into the actual searching parts, and after reading it thoroughly from chapter 6 onwards I finished the book in awe of the searching and adventures you have experienced.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My word you have done some work on this Gavin.  Good luck going forward and if you do need assistance with a ground search would be happy to assist

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your book has been a good insight into the aviation world and also the technology, I hope you have done well with it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I read your book last night, it was fascinating.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think you have made a great job of it and I feel that it is a great credit to you. It seems of a thoroughly professional standard.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is indeed very interesting.  I commend you on your research and I wonder what the outcome would have been had it been considered in the 1962 search.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, thank you very much for the copy of your book Traced…Yet Still Missing.  It was so interesting that I read it at one sitting.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've had the opportunity to read Traced...yet still missing! , and was very impressed by the extraordinary lengths you have gone to in your  investigations and your attention to detail, to say nothing of the scary flying along narrow glacial valleys and of your extremely challenging ground searches in some inhospitable and potentially dangerous country trying to trace this and other lost aircraft.  I can now more fully appreciate your theory about what happened to Dragonfly ZK-AFB.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Absolutely fantastic book!! This will make an excellent Christmas stocking filler and enthralling read for my aircraft loving (and budding conspiracy theorist) father. AAA+++
