    CREW ROLL OF REMEMBRANCE

    COLLINS, Thomas James (Jim)

    Position: Captain | Country: New Zealand

    In memory of a dedicated pilot and much loved husband, father, son, brother and friend. So deeply missed.


    I met Jim Collins when I was at St Heliers School. His daughter Katheryn was in my class and to this day, I still remember. RIP. Richard Toewater


    He was a great uncle. - Harrison


    CASSIN, Gregory Mark

    Position: First Officer | Country: New Zealand

    A wonderful family man with a love of flying. We all miss you so much!


    LUCAS, Graham Neville

    Position: First Officer | Country: New Zealand

    An amazing pilot and wonderful guy, we are all very proud of you. Former SkyHawk and Canberra pilot out of Ohakea Base with the 75th Squadron.


    I had never seen him so excited. We had dreamed of going to Antarticia together and he was like a little kid when he gleefully apologised that he couldn't wait for me - he had been offered a seat on flight 901. He lived to fly, loved working for Air New Zealand and considered the DC10 the best aircraft ever developed. A constant friend, deeply missed still.

    BROOKS, Gordon Barrett

    Position: Flight Engineer | Country: New Zealand

    Dad loved flying. It wasent just his job, it was something that deeply interested him. He was a dedicated air crew member. And he was our dad. Its hard to put into words just what losing him means - he was and is so very loved. He is part of our life stories - still. Kia kaha dad x     Virginia Brooks


    I am Gordon's sister and remember him with great pride as one of the chief engineers in Air New Zealand. His voice on the black box voicing his concerns and then faithfully counting down as the distance between the plane and the ground so unexpectedly lessened, illustrated his courage, integrity, and meticulous service to duty in the Airline which was his life. I and my family remain very proud of him and are thankful that we sense him still close to us in spirit. Alison Panckhurst

    I knew Suzanne Marinovic(nee Watt) and her sister Janice. Suzie & I used to knock around together and go to the dances back in ther 70's. She had a fantastic personality , great fun to be with and I loved being around her. I was devastated to hear about the crash as I knew she was on the flight that day. I am from Chch which is where Suzie used to live in Burwood. We lost touch after awhile but I always remember the good times we had and even now I still talk about her. Her memory will be with me always. RIP my friend. Ann Smith

    I had the pleasure of meeting Simon Shelton, and Iain Miller over the Xmas period in the Marlborough Sounds,and when talking with them about Erebus, said that I have never been invited to any function, flight, or any thing since the initial accident. I was married to Martin Burley chief Purser at the time, and he had done the same flight 2 weeks earlier. I would so appreciate to be notified of any further events of Erebus.My mother and father have since passed away, but have 2 adult sons who dearly loved their uncle Bruce. - Judy Burley [ nee Maxwell]

    WOLFERT, Marie-Therese

    Position: Cabin Crew | Country: New Zealand

    My dad's sister Marie was only 28 years old at the time of the crash - she had no children yet, but a great career with Air NZ and everything in life to look forward to. She used to look after me when I was little and I remember her as a glamorous, beautiful and warm aunty who I loved, and now cannot eat jellybeans with associating them with her. Her passing had a terrible impact on my family, and nothing was the same again for the Clancy's and sadly for her husband Roelof who took his own life 5 months later. I was glad to be there for you today at the 30th anniversary memorial service, to show you were loved and remembered. I wish you were still here Aunty Marie xx Miriam Clancy

    BROAD, Jon Philip Dr

    Country: New Zealand

    Jon Broad was my Father. I remember that awful day very well. It was my sister Philipa Broad 21st birthday present. They both died that day and myself and my Mother Margaret Broad  were waiting to greet them at Auckland airport when a random stranger walked passed with a shocked look on his face and said are you waiting for the the Erebus flight? I've just heard on the radio that it's missing. The arrival board at Auckland airport said it had arrived and departed Christchurch. I remember my poor Mother going to pieces on hearing this. I remember being called In to a room at Auckland Airport and being told lies that there was still hope when in fact the plane  would have run out of fuel hours ago. I remember walking out of that room after being told there was no hope. I remember a tv reporter waiting and  sticking  a camera and a microphone in my Mothers and my face and asking how we felt. I wanted to punch that reporter. To this day I hate news people that prey on others grief. I remember years of agony afterwards as it was a constant news items and  despite my poor Mothers letters and calls to the media begging them not to do it every time Erebus was mentioned they showed those terrible pictures of the plane. It made the grief of those who lost loved ones even worse. But it was cheap sensationalist media. I remember the court of inquiry and  the Orchestrated Littany of Lies fiasco. I remember how they tried to blame the poor pilot. I remember as a 14 yo child Learning to never trust anyone in power and especially the media. I remember My beautiful Mothers strength in coping with this. I remember the memorial flight to Antarctica when my cousin Richard Broad got a spot on the 2nd trip. He had only  meet My Father and Sister a couple of times. Yet he was quite happy taking a place from someone who needed the trip to help close their grief. So yes I remember My Sister and Father but what Erebus taught me is deeper than that. It taught me to trust very few people in life and  to never trust the media or any government. The true victim of Erebus was poor Justice Mahn. - Duncan Broad


    My mother, was Frances Evelyn Broad and Jon’s cousin. She said Jon had taken his daughter Philippa on this trip for her 21st birthday. My heart is with them both. - Wendy Jane Evelyn Wingfield

    I am Geraldine's eldest sister, Geraldine has 2 sisters and 5 brothers, we all miss our sister and the heartache is just as much today as in 1979. Over the years I have tried to get information on memorial services without much success. The family would love to be kept informed about anything regarding the Mount Erebus disaster. We have been trying to get information on 40th anniversary services as we would like to attend. - Valarie Greenham
