The Final Destination: Indian Woman, Geriatric Pilot Killed in Taupō Glider Crash

Posted by te2ataria on June 4, 2020

ONLY Death is Democratic in NZ!

More than 40,000 foreigners—overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers and new emigrants from more than 70 countries—have been violently killed, permanently maimed, or otherwise seriously injured by NZ tourism machination between Jan 2000 and December 2019. At least 98 percent of the casualties would’ve been avoidable, if the ultra-racist, white supremacist gatekeepers of the slaughterhouse gave a f*ck. [Updated December 2019.]


Female victim and her husband emigrated from India five years ago

The Indian woman, 41, from Wellington, and a Taupō-based geriatric pilot  [nationality undisclosed] were killed when the glider crashed into Mt Tauhara around 2.45pm on Sunday.

The two people who were killed have been identified as Anthony Frederick Hector Budd, 78, and Kusum Pasha (nee Chandrappa), 41.

WTF: Blog Moderators are distressed to discover that a nearly octogenarian glider pilot was permitted to fly with passenger onboard, resulting in a most likely avoidable fatal tragedy.

The Indian couple, members of the Muslim community in Wellington, were reportedly holidaying in Taupō for the weekend.

“The husband of a woman who died in a glider crash near Taupō had already taken a trip in the glider and was waiting for his wife to return when the crash happened.”

The Indian woman was described as “a very generous person who always supported community projects.”

The bodies have since been recovered and sent to Wellington for post mortem examinations before being returned to the families, the report said.

    Bro, what you’re saying makes perfect sense. Why was a 78-year-old allowed to fly passengers in a physically demanding aircraft such as a glider, when commercial pilots are required to retire in their 60s?
    Is there no common sense or accountability in this joke of a country?

    Where are the frickin CAA when they should be there preventing avoidable deaths?
