This news item (probably ex-Morning Report) features a telephone interview with the widow of the Mount Erebus Air New Zealand DC10 pilot Jim Collins. Marie Collins gives her reaction to the Royal Commission of Inquiry report which exonerated her husband and 'pilot error' as the cause of the crash.
There has been international media interest in the release of the inquiry report. Excerpt of coverage by the BBC's "World at One" programme presented by Brian Widlake. In a telephone interview with Widlake, Prime Minister Robert Muldoon asks New Zealanders to give Air New Zealand their support and defends Air New Zealand management, despite the Attorney-General referring the report to the police.
He says he is not concerned about damage to Air New Zealand's reputation as a result of the inquiry's findings.
