G On 28 November 1979, an Air New Zealand DC-10 crashed into Mt Erebus, Antarctica, killing all 257 people on board. It was the worst civil aviation disaster in NZ history and, at the time, the fourth worst in the world. Made two years later, Flight 901 was the first in-depth documentary on the incident. Here, details of a navigation error, and a subsequent tragic string of events, are revealed.
