Yesterday we marked the 37th anniversary of the Erebus Tragedy, the day Air New Zealand flight TE901 Crashed on the slopes of Mt Erebus, #Antarctica, with the loss of all 257 on board. It was the world's fourth largest aircraft disaster at the time, and a tragedy that touched the lives of all New Zealanders.

At Scott Base we remember not only those who died in the crash, but also friends and family of those who lost their lives.  We also pay special thanks to those who were involved in the response and recovery operations that followed.

The Erebus disaster has been remembered in many ways. This photo is the memorial cross up at the crash site on Mt Erebus. The photo was taken by Antarctica New Zealand's former CEO Lou Sanson in 2007.
