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!

My photos on the previous page, makes the Big Ben Range appear much further away that what they appear as in real life. Mark Church sent me this photo (Oct 2012) that makes them appear much more realistic, although in real life they appear even closer!


As at November 2012, I have so much on my plate researching these missing aircraft, that I run the danger of not doing any of these missing aircraft justice. So to avoid this, I am directing various aircraft reports to different people so that they can concentrate on collating all the information on a particular one.

However, you can still contact me if you wish, but I will only be mainly working as a ‘go between’.

The person to contact on this one is Darryl Sherwin  027689-7853 or


Darryl has been working on this missing plane for probably longer than I, and although he has a different theory on where it may have ended up, we still both have the same find Ryan, put an end to the mystery, and give the Moynahan Family some finality.
