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!

You will see that this object (cropped off the much larger photo) is so obvious that I don’t even need to point out the position of it in the above image! Below is it zoomed in some more.

I then thought I would try to match and overlay this photo on Google Earth and spent quite some time trying to work out where it was.... remember that I thought this was in the main block of the Hunuas. When I eventually worked out where it was, I was somewhat stunned to see that it was actually within the calculated area that I had worked out going by the eyewitness account of seeing an aeroplane from a position near Pinnacle Hill on an acutely steep dive.... not only that, but it was within 1 1/2 miles of the observer!
