This is the important historical documentary tracing the terrible tragedy of a jet carrying 257 passengers that crashed into Mount Erebus, Antarctica on November 28, 1979. The closest country to respond was New Zealand, and within hours, 11 ordinary police officers were called to duty to help recover the bodies and search for any survivors. They travelled to the most inhospitable place on earth to deal with one of the world’s worst air disasters, they were pushed to their limits. This film follows the men decades later as they recount their story, using archival footage and never before seen video of their expedition. As they started recovering the victims, an investigation team tried to uncover the mystery of how a jet could fly into a mountain in broad daylight. Did the airline have a secret it wanted to bury? For the first time, senior staff from Air New Zealand give us the inside story, revealing the truth of the accident.
