  • On November 28, 1979, an Air New Zealand jet took off from Auckland Airport on a sightseeing trip to Antarctica.

    There were 257 people on board. Hours later everyone was dead.

    Somehow, the plane had flown directly into the Erebus volcano. This was a disaster that shattered a country’s psyche.

    In the decades since, grief gave way to blame, anger and recrimination. Who was responsible for so many deaths? Was there a cover-up? How could a plane just fly into a mountain?

    To mark the 40th anniversary of the disaster, Michael Wright and Katy Gosset explore why New Zealand’s deadliest disaster was also its most controversial; why a nation was incapable of moving on; and how it was captured by one famous phrase: ‘an orchestrated litany of lies’.

    White Silence will be released daily from November 8, 2019.
