Scott Base & Air New Zealand Flight 901

Air New Zealand Flight 901, or The Mt Erebus disaster, occurred 35 years ago on November 28, 1979 killing all on board.  The Kiwi's at Scott Base hosted a memorial service last Friday for family members of the victims.  I was tasked to drive them to and from the Pegasus white ice runway in Ivan, the Terra Bus.  It was a sobering day, but an honor to be a small part of it.  They flew down on the Australian Airbus.  My Kiwi friend Trudie was one of the escorts. A quick trip on a beautiful day.
