Comments:Well Done to everyone involved. As well as the need to tell and remember there is a valuable learning resource here too. As well as remembering what happened, the extraordinary amount of effort required, and the level of professional input by NZ ALPA to achieve justice are valuable lessons for all pilot asssociations - especially those from smaller associations working in smaller airlines.

Comments:It is always tough to lose a friend or colleague in an air accident. Yet the pain never goes away until we are satisfied the he did not 'cause' the accident. We hope as with all air accidents that we learn from them, never to repeat them. May they rest in peace.

Comments:Congratulations to all at NZALPA. The Erebus accident marks a significant turning point in aviation and a terrible reminder of the real responsibility we all, as aviation professionals, carry on behalf of those that entrust their lives and loved ones to us. This accident was a personal tragedy for many throughout New Zealand and the pain was shared by friends and family the world around. Despite this aviation, and New Zealand, have emerged stronger. I had the absolute pleasure to be part of NZALPA's conference in 2008 at which some of the personal stories were shared (and recounted on this site). I had the honour of dining that night with Maria Collins, wife of Captain Jim Collins the skipper of TE901. An amazing woman in her own right she cannot praise NZALPA enough for the support shown to her family and those who lost loved ones in the accident. NZALPA's dedication to ensuring that the lessons learnt are not lost to the world whilst at the same time providing a lasting memorial for all is a testimonial to the strength and character of the association and the many staff, officials, members and families that make it up. The collaboration shown by industry, media, public and NZALPA in the development of this site show that we can work together and that community spirit is alive and well in New Zealand. The 257 on board TE901 live on through those of us who remember and the website launched today will do much to help future generations understand what happened and the importance of ensuring that history is not repeated. We here in Australia applaud your continuing efforts in championing the cause of safety improvements in the industry and I am certain they are echoed globally. Congratulations NZALPA.
