40th Anniversary Of Erebus Disaster

The Prime Minister and Air New Zealand have apologised for failures that led to a huge plane crash.

In a special ceremony for this disaster Jacinda Ardern issued a ''wholehearted and wide reaching'' apology. Neither the government nor Air New Zealand have ever made a full apology before.

The apology mark 40 years since the crash of Air New Zealand Flight TE901 on Mt Erebus in Antarctica in 1979, with the loss of 257 lives.

It remains New Zealand’s worst airplane disaster. The plane was on a sightseeing trip to Antarctica.The disaster was a shock for New Zealand. It affected almost everyone in the country and led to years of investigations.
