Normally I would watch the Smithsonian channel when an Air crash investigation show was on but now I go to The FlightChannel, why, because it's just as detailed if not more with NO commercials and explains in depth exactly where it happened, why it happened and the results and changes made after the investigations and all of this in less than half the time but leaves nothing out. The Aircraft is shown with the right name, the right Aircraft, the correct weather before the incident, during and after. Thank you FlightChannel for your commitment to produce quality and informative video's and as always I want to thank you mostly for your hard work and for sharing these videos. The great thing about all of this is I can watch youtube on my 50" big screen TV and I do and in surround sound which just adds a little more to enjoyment of your video's, thank you again.👍 👍 👍 👍 👍

The newer episodes are unwatchable with that bs music. It's disrespectful to the people who died. It's the same bs that's in so many documentaries now

I've only watched a few of these tragic reconstructions, but one thing is recurring, the involvement of the hated and cursed DC 10. there should always be far more stringent checks on certain airlines and planes, with a longer history of fatalities than average.

What was the cost of this trip, $359? That was big money in 1979. A couple week's pay at any rate. I'm sorry but I'm not spending two week's pay on a "sight-seeing tour of Antarctica". If only because there isn't much to see. Youve got a "grayout" condition during good times. That and a "whiteout" scenario when there's bad. Next, a jumbo jet like the infamous DC-10 uses ungodly amounts of fuel especially at lower altitudes. Which was during it's whole flight plan.

I watched the excellent docu-drama by New Zealand TV some years ago, entitled "Erebus, the Aftermath". Haunting music. It brought out the fact that the coordinates had been changed. The head of the commission was played by Frank Finlay. 3 hours. Here are the links: Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VImFx0GrjHE Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avnBAtLvVqY&t=3473s

This disaster was planned. That means all on board were murdered. The officials responsible were never charged with manslaughter. To reprogram equipment and not inform flight crews is 100% negligence. The cover up is also proof of a covert operation. This whole thing stinks of foul play.

A great tragedy. Human errors in the chain of information. So sad. It is best not to operate this type of flight. The Weather is too lousy, so there is not much to see, unless the crew takes the aircraft very low. This would not be a good idea.

Flight plan changed last night to have the plane fly right into a mountain. Sightseeing over Antarctica stopped from that point onward. Some of the people claimed to have died in the crash are then found to be alive...... Nothing fishy about this.

I had forgotten those found still alive and not in the Antarctic, either. Passenger loading, distristribution of tickets? Procedures couldn't't have been that sloppy!

This is a good basic summary which captured a few the many very complex factors surrounding this crash. Given time constraints, there were many unexplored questions such as the role played by McMurdo Air Traffic control (a US Military base). One very important misconception is that the crew proceeded in poor or cloudy visibility. This was a fallacy perpetuated by the official report which was one of political expediency. The Royal Commission of inquiry, thanks to the brilliant work of the judge (Peter Mahon) and dedicated research by an Air NZ pilot (Gordon Vette) demonstrated conclusively that the aircraft was flying in clear air at impact. It was flying toward what the crew regarded as an ill defined horizon. Photos taken of land formations from both sides of the aircraft cabin shortly before impact (shown in passenger photos from recovered film) clearly prove the plane was in clear air. The ‘Sector Whiteout’ mentioned in the vid is a phenomenon that caused a chillingly deceptive optical illusion that completely disarmed the pilots cognitive ability to detect the mountain slopes directly ahead of them. When layered together with the erroneous destination coordinates programmed into their flight management system (the airlines Navigation department changed these at the last minute but didn’t tell the crew) a deadly trap was sprung. The illusion was created by the cloud layer above the aircraft which intersected the snowy volcanic mountain ahead, with its base also shrouded in foggy or misty conditions. Thus the island became invisible. The diffused light rays reflecting off the white slopes and bouncing back off the cloud (underneath) and back again off the snowy slopes, and so on, distorted all depth perception and lead to the belief of all four crew and visitors in the flight deck, that they were looking at flat sea ice for many miles ahead as far as the eye could see. This perception of flat terrain leading to an ill defined horizon mimicked precisely the view they had all anticipated seeing, based on the official briefings, training, flight planning, and knowledge of previous flights from colleagues. Yet, even despite this ‘correct’ Visual affirmation of the expected flat run in to McMurdo Sound, the Captain (Collins) was very concerned with the lack of Radio contact with the MCMurdo naval station ATC. Unbeknown to him the radio black spot was caused by the mountain that wasn’t supposed to be there, blocking the transmissions. Thus, as a precaution he had already made a decision to turn back and climb away from the area, as he had determined that continuing towards McMurdo was unwise given the lack of contact and the ill defined horizon ahead. This in itself was incredible act of airmanship, and but for a few more seconds would have averted the tragedy. He was in the process of coordinating a safe turn direction left or right, to enable them head back the way they had come. He had just finished determining the turn direction with the help of a first officer, when the ground proximity system was triggered by the mountain they still could not see. It’s a chilling scenario to even imagine the last few moments, as the crew hurtled towards something they could not see hiding in plain sight? There are some good books on this Royal commission and the efforts of Mahon and others to uncover the truth.

This video, though, doesn't match the known facts very well. It incorrectly states the planes was flying in cloud when the commentator came into the cockpit. It incorrectly shows snow falling, incorrectly implies sector whiteout results from snow or sand (ambiguous description). There remains to this day controversy. Most pilots in my forum hopping seem unconvinced that the aircrew was without some degree of culpability. What Vette doesn't mention in his otherwise superb book is the controversial nature of relying on the onboard nav (AINS) for descents below MSA, which is essentially what happened here. In addition, the Mahon report IMO is also flawed in attributing the "single most" dominant cause of the crash to the failure to tell Collins of the coordinate change. But it has to be asked, how can this be the dominant cause when AINS was not designed for the purpose of terrain avoidance?

In addition to everything else, the whole idea of running a sightseeing excursion over the Antarctic seems like a risky plan to me in the first place. Having an aircraft essentially on their own over an area with rugged mountains in marginal weather seems like a very bad idea. There was nobody in the rest or the world that could track them on radar way down there, giving them a second set of eyes to warn them about their location. It sounds more like an idea by the company to bring in some additional money.

Nothing about this makes much sense unless they were trying to stop all air traffic going to the Antarctic. Which, considering all the info that's out there now about the Antarctic, would make sense. Pretty much noone's allowed to go down there now except military and other special circumstances.
Jeffrey McCloskey (2 months ago)
OK, I'm confused on one point. They descended to 1,500 feet because the Navy Base at McMurdo had them on radar. Why wouldn't McMurdo ATC have noticed they were headed straight towards Mt Erebus and warned them?
