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!

Kaipo Valley entrance between layers of cloud

Hollyford Valley (Martins Bay) entrance between layers of cloud

Same as top image with no cloud - Kaipo Valley Entrance

Hollyford Valley (Martins Bay) entrance with no cloud

In conditions between cloud layers, you can easily see how easy it would have been to mistake the Kaipo as Martins Bay.

Throw in “lumpy” cloud (as it would have been), rain and drizzle and take away a lot of the light, and you have a real problem on your hands!
