Comments:Very well done on the site. It is a fitting memory for those who sadly paid the ultimate price on that day. This accident was only the beginning of a long and searching investigation which took its toll on the health and careers of those who sought truth and Justice. Justice Mahon and those who assisted him should be remembered for their persistance and bravery in their quest. For those who have passed, rest in peace.

Comments:A fitting memorial. The accident happened about the time a started my flying career. It's aftermath showed how vulnerable aircrew is when it comes to laying blame. But in that respect, in the end something good came from it. Nevertheless, even after all these years, there must be pain. One can't remember without being aware of that too. I hope this site will serve as one of the many initiatives that will make our world a wiser and happier place.

Comments:For me, it has been thirty years of admiration to the few men who dared to undertake what is now seen as a must: A systemic approach for an accident investigation. It was a true challenge to the existing establishment. What an achievement! Congratulations for this great idea to reactivate the collective memories and awareness of the stake of an accident investigation. Captain Jean-Louis CHATELAIN Accident Investigator

Comments:As a member of the Dutch Airline Pilots Association I congratulate the members of NZALPA on this remarkable website. This terrible tragedy marked a turning point in accident investigation which the airline world is thankful for. I hope that we remember that only through openness and cooperation have we greatly improved airline safety over the years since. We should all resist current efforts by worldwide lawmaking agencies to assign blame rather than improve safety. Thanks again.

Comments:As a pilot for KLM from 1970-2003 this accident has always been in the back of my mind. Especially the courage of the wife of the Captain who flatly refused to accept it was only a pilots error. The result we all know. Don't point a finger at anyone. Always ask why and learn from it.

Comments:This is a fantastic legacy to the tragedy that shook us all when it occured - only to be overtaken by the initial conclusions of the investigation. The change in investigative techniques and the depth of detail to which the subsequent Royal Commission committed itself has had long lasting and beneficial changes to accident investigations worldwide. As International Pilots, we have all benefitted from the change of attitude these professionals brought about. Whilst any accident is tragic, the consequences of this one has meant that these professionals have not died in vain. Our thoughts and prayers are still with you all and your families left behind. Congratulations to all at NZALPA - it is credit to you that you still remember your colleagues. Chris Lawrence

Comments:I want to congratulate NZ ALPA for their initiative to launch this site. The sacrifice of Crew and Passengers that lost their lives on Mt Erebus in 1979 will not be in vain, as long as the lessons learned from the TE 901 tragic accident are contributing to save lives up to date. We are enjoying safer operations thanks to this inconceivable sacrifice and the hard work and commitment of persons like Capt. Gordon Vette and Hon. Justice Peter Mahon. I was honored to met and present the Presidential citation to Capt. Gordon Vetter during the 2009 IFALPA Conference at Auckland. I recognize the NZ ALPA effort to keep alive the memory of those who perished that tragically day in Antarctica; because this reminiscence will keep us in mind every single day that we need to work harder to have a safer industry and we must ensure not having a similar accident ever again. It is an honor to have NZ ALPA as an IFALPA member. Sincerely Capt. Carlos Limon IFALPA President
