Road Fatalities: Police Censorship

At least FIVE, possibly as many as SEVEN, people were killed in serious crashes on Wednesday, August 23, according to a informed source, but only three fatalities were reported by police.

On Monday, August 28, police reported at least THREE road fatalities. All three victims seem to have been statistically resurrected by the Ministry of Truth (Minitru).

At least nine road fatalities occurred over the weekend (September 1 – 2), according to reliable insider information. However, only four of the deaths were reported by police, and of those, just three recorded by the Ministry of Transport.

Of an estimated 2,000 people who have received near-fatal/critical/serious injuries on New Zealand roads so far this year, none has perished, according to NZ police reports, or lack thereof.

Sinking NZ: Earthquakes, Landslides, ‘Slow Slips’, Sinkholes, Volcanic Eruptions

Kaikōura quake triggered massive ‘slow slips’ up to 600km away
“The slow slips occurred within days of the 7.8-magnitude Kaikōura quake, 15km deep below seabed, and spanned more than 15,000 sq km off the Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne coasts,” according to a report.
“One of the most intriguing factors is that the quake-triggered slow slip off the Gisborne coast [was] up to 600km away from its epicentre in North Canterbury,” said GNS Science’s Dr Laura Wallace.

Massive sinkhole discovered in Waihi
A massive sinkhole measuring 20 metres in diameter has been discovered on a council reserve between the Waihi Rugby Club and the Martha open pit, the council said.

“The sinkhole has collapsed into an unfilled stope in the historic Royal workings within the High Hazard Zone. Original records indicate that the historic stope was partially backfilled, but the upper 20 metres remained unfilled.”

Killer Sharks and Air New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on February 27, 2013

What could they possibly have in common?

They each claimed a victim in New Zealand this week!

A man in his 40s was attacked and killed by a shark  14 foot long in Maori Bay today.
https://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/34413.html

The victims, not yet named, was “swimming 200m offshore north from Maori Bay to Muriwai at about 1.30pm when he was attacked by a shark. His injuries were fatal.”

“Police and surf life savers went out in two IRBs and fired on the shark. It rolled over and disappeared.” Police said.

Muriwai and surrounding beaches have since been closed.

It’s believed that more than one shark may have been involved in the fatal attack.

Air New Zealand

A man died on an Air NZ flight at Auckland International Airport, according to a report.

The victim collapsed as he was boarding Air New Zealand flight NZ56 to Nadi, Fiji, about 9.05am on Monday.

The victim’s identity has not been released.

The American Honeymoon in New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on September 22, 2012

Husband killed, woman remains critical

Newly wed U.S. woman whose husband was killed in a crash by the Waitomo Caves remains in a critical condition in Waikato Hospital.


Yet another American killed in New Zealand. Kenneth Kallan Stithem and Kirsten Steinke were married just five days ago in the US. Mr Stithem was killed in a crash at Waitomo which left Ms Steinke in a critical condition in Waikato Hospital. Photo:  Supplied/via stuff NZ.

The American couple, married just five days ago in the US, were on their honeymoon when their car was rammed by a cement truck on Thursday.

The bridegroom, 31-year-old Kenneth Stithem, was killed in the crash and his 28-year-old wife Kirsten Steinke is in critical condition, awaiting surgery.

Her parents, who traveled from Colorado, are at their daughter’s bedside, according to Newstalk ZB.

On average, 3 foreigners are killed in New Zealand every 4 days.

Kenneth Stithem was probably the 2,553rd tourist killed in New Zealand since January 2000.

RIP!

The Air New Zealand “Bereavement Service”

So many tourists are killed in New Zealand that our national air carrier, Air New Z-land is now offering a special “bereavement service” for the victims’ families.

“They also singled out the service provided by Air New Zealand as part of their bereavement policy. From the moment both couples checked in at Los Angeles International Airport, Air New Zealand ensured they were “red tagged” right through to Auckland Airport and fast-tracked through Customs with the help of the New Zealand Police,” according to a report.

Another Air New Zealand Flying Coffin Catches Fire

Flames? What Flames?

“Amazing” Air New Zealand said no flames came off the wing: Scared to Death Passenger

 “Huge flames” erupted on the wing, said the passenger on board the Air New Zealand flight from Sydney to Auckland.

The woman, who asked not to be named, was on flight NZ118, coming into Auckland Airport from Sydney on Sunday when there was a power surge in one of the four engines.

Lying B**tards

The spokeswoman [for Air New Zealand] said none of the plane’s staff saw flames coming from the engine. But the passenger, who was in the window-seat overlooking the engine, found it “amazing” the airline said there were no flames coming off the wing.

You can’t miss a blaze that size

“Well, believe you me – I was sitting on the side of the plane that had the engine trouble and there were huge flames coming out from under the wing. How you could miss it I don’t know,” she said.

Some of the woman’s friends who were driving along the Manukau motorway at the time told her they could see flames coming out of the engine and thought it was in trouble.

“I saw what I thought was an emergency beacon – but then realised it was flames coming out of the outer starboard engine,” Manukau resident Kevin Ward told 3 News.

The woman on the flight said no one on board was panicked because the captain and flight attendants did not tell passengers that anything had happened.

“We circled around for quite a while, so obviously they were dumping fuel.”

Air New Zealand Exposes 84 to Potentially Fatal Virus

Posted by te2ataria on December 17, 2009

sent by a reader

Urgent Health Warning!

At least 84 passengers may have been exposed to measles virus on 2 Air New Zealand flights

At least 84 passengers may have been exposed to measles virus on two Air New Zealand flights: Flight NZ1 from London to Auckland on Monday, December 7, and the connecting domestic flight NZ509 from Auckland to Christchurch.


Original photo is by Gail Selkirk and may be subject to copyright.

“Auckland and Canterbury health authorities are trying to contact people sitting near the [infected] baby on both flights; for the international leg, 56 people sitting in rows 56-60 were at risk while 28 people sitting in rows 13-17 were exposed on the domestic flight.” A report said.

It is important that passengers sitting in those rows contact the health authorities to help prevent the spread of the highly infectious and potentially deadly virus that could spread rapidly among unimmunized groups.

“These passengers, or their family members, who have symptoms suggestive of measles are advised to immediately seek advice from a doctor,” Auckland Regional Public Health Service medical officer Dr Brad Novak said.

“Call ahead to alert your doctor or practice nurse about the possibility of measles as this will allow them to arrange to assess you safely without infecting others. People who suspect they may have measles should avoid contact with young children and pregnant women.”

People most at risk of contracting the disease are those who had not had the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine or who had just had one dose of it, the report said.

Some facts about measles:

  • Measles is an infection of the respiratory system caused by a virus.
  • The classical symptoms of measles include four day fevers, cough, runny nose and conjunctivitis (sore, red eyes).
  • Measles is a leading cause of vaccine-preventable childhood mortality, World Health Org says.
  • The measles incubation period is up to 21 days.
  • Measles killed 345,000 in 2005.
  • Measles virus is spread by
    • breathing
    • coughing
    • sneezing
  • The measles incubation period is about 21 days.

Measles can be fatal.

How Air New Zealand Killed 257 People …

Posted by te2ataria on November 15, 2009

sent by a reader [Edited by TEAA]

… and New Zealand Govt Screwed the Dead Victims’ Families

Whereas an Israeli family [allegedly] received $25m for the loss of a member in New Zealand, the average Erebus victim’s family got only $25,000.

Had the case been moved to the United States the compensations would have been considerably more: “In the US life is valued very highly by juries that award damages.” Kim Murray, a junior lawyer working for the NZ govt in 1979.

  • Both Air New Zealand management and the Air New Zealand pilot who crashed the Air NZ McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 were guilty of reckless misconduct.

Additionally:

  • The plane may have been used as an assassination weapon to murder one or more passengers, while making it look like an accident to prevent arousing any suspicion.

  • Why did  Sir Edmund Hillary refuse to board Air New Zealand flight 901?

Maurice McGreal, a former pilot and Civil Aviation expert said: “The Erebus tragedy would never have happened if [Jack Spence] a Civil Aviation [DC-10 inspector,] scheduled to be on board that day, had made the flight.

  • Why did Jack Spence also excuse himself from flying on Air NZ flight 901?

The Mt Erebus Air NZ disaster case MUST now be re-opened outside New Zealand to find out exactly what led to the crash.

The compensation to the victims’ families must be topped up.

“Olympics” Pimp Personifies Top New Zealanders

Posted by te2ataria on October 11, 2009

sent by an Aussie reader [edited by TEAA]

Meet Puke pakeha Pimp of the Day!

Just because your mom told you she would help with the clients, it doesn’t make it any better

Logan Campbell - Taekwondo Pimp
PpP Logan Campbell, disguised as an Olympic Pimp opened a brothel with help from his family.—AP Photo. Image may be subject to copyright.

I first heard about the “Taekwondo” pimp in July, but dismissed it as just another kiwi looking to make a buck on the back of the discredited Olympic games.

Now the International Olympic Committee has ordered the dysfunctional New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) to threaten the puke pakeha pimp with legal action.

“Based on the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect, we would place your actions as totally inconsistent with these values,” the NZOC finally said in a letter.

“Your open solicitation of clients for your business while using the Olympics or Olympian connection must cease immediately.”

Puke pakeha Pimp Logan Campbell’s reacted by saying, if Air New Zealand can prostitute its employees to get more bums on seats, why can’t he make a few bucks by offering the female members of his family to willing clients, or words to that effect.

“At the end of the day, I feel like I’m not exploiting anyone because no one has to be here, we are not forcing anyone to be here. They are here of their own free will,” the pimp told NZ TV network.

NZOC had remained silent for nearly 4 months and had no intention of intervening either in Air NZ sky prostitution games, or the running of the “Olympic” pimp’s family brothel in Auckland.

Campbell, is by no means good at his other chosen sport, Taekwondo, either. He only finished in the last 16 in the featherweight division at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.  He then went on to establish a “high-class gentleman’s club” with help from his mother and other members of his family in Auckland earlier this year.

The build-up to his Beijing campaign had cost about $150,000, most of which came from his parents, and he hoped to earn $300,000 by 2011 to fund his bid for the 2012 Games. Campbell said his business and fundraising efforts were legitimate. ODT said.

That tells you volumes about the standards of morality in [poxy] New Zealand, doesn’t it!

The lowlife pimp has threatened to take legal action of his own, said NZ TV3. Though it’s not known who he will sue or for what.

Now YOU Know Why YOU Don’t Deserve Anyone Better Than Yohn Key [or Phil Goof]

Another Air NZ Flying Coffin Catches Fire Mid-air

Posted by te2ataria on September 2, 2009

Will You Be So Lucky Next Time?

Air New Zealand Flight NZ535, a Boeing 737, carrying 95 passengers, was forced into an emergency landing at Wellington airport today.

plane_engine_fire
Air New Zealand Flight NZ535 may have looked like this after it caught fire. Source of the image.

The plane, flying from Auckland to Christchurch, reportedly ran into trouble “about 10 minutes” after takeoff, according to a passenger.

“He said jetstream coming over the engine on the aircraft’s right-hand side turned from white to grey, then black. The smell of burning rubber filled the cabin, causing panic among the passengers, he said.” NZPA reported.

The plane was diverted to Wellington airport for an emergency landing.

“It was pretty scary. A few people were panicking. . . not screaming, but just a bit fidgety, looking around at everyone,” the passenger told Radio New Zealand. “A few of us were wondering what was going on.  I’m a bit religious, and I was definitely saying a few prayers on the way down, I’ll put it that way.”

A naked Air NZ spokeswoman said the plane had to be diverted to Wellington because smoke was detected.

Propeller falls off New Zealand plane

Posted by te2ataria on July 7, 2009

sent by a reader

The propeller blade spun off, struck the fuselage, tore thru the side, and fell to the ground

Great Barrier flight loses propeller blade

Hauraki Gulf commuters got the shock of their lives on Sunday when a propeller spun off their small plane and dropped to the ground.

The three-engine Britten-Norman Trilander, with 11 passengers and pilot Sean Deeney, had just taken off from Claris Airport on Great Barrier Island bound for Auckland when the incident happened.

The propeller blade spun off and struck the fuselage, “sending aluminium shards into the cabin, then fell to the ground.”

A passenger’s photographs show the damage done when a propeller came off New Zealand’s Great Barrier Airlines aircraft’s engine in mid-flight. Photo / Supplied

The pilot shut the engine down and returned to Claris Airport.

It was a “normal approach and landing” on two of the three engines and the plane taxied back to the terminal, he said. [Presumably, the third engine is really an accessory, and is not needed.]

Great Barrier Islands Airways operations manager Mike Maguire said passengers were not at risk but had been concerned.

How could passengers be at risk when something like a clumsy propeller spins off, hits the fuselage, tears through the side of the plane and then falls to the ground?

“Any time you are in flight and something goes wrong there is reason to be concerned,” he told the Dominion Post.

“He did an exceptional job getting the plane on to the ground,” Mr Maguire said.

Say, what caused the propeller to fall off?

He would not comment on what may have caused the accident.

Meanwhile, the hunt is on to find the propeller in swampy ground near Claris as the Traffic Accident Investigation Commission investigates what went wrong.

Happy propeller-hunting, folks! Would you like to take a few Easter eggs along to the swamp to save the hunters from boredom?

An Eye-Witness Account of a “six-minute nightmare …”

“The impact of the propeller, which came from the engine on the right wing, was terrifying.”

[At least one female passenger is known to have defecated in her pants.]

Passengers said the palne engine was wobbling during takeoff. [Clearly the pilot was used to that standard of maintenance.]

“It was like an explosion going off inside the plane,” a passenger told the Herald.

“The propeller came off and hit the side of the plane …

“Both propeller blades came off – the whole thing just destroyed itself. It just completely self-destructed.

“A door got ripped off and the side of the plane got smashed in – we all got covered in glass.

“There was a huge amount of debris that we were just covered in. There were chunks the size of golfballs that came back and hit you.”

“It was just lucky there was one seat spare – that was where it hit and pushed the side of the aircraft in.

“If someone had been sitting there they would have been injured quite severely.

“The guy I was sitting beside, he had the initiative to grab his camera out, but he was shaking so much he had some trouble taking pictures so I did it.”

“Two passengers needed medical treatment to remove debris from their eyes, and the man decided to catch a ferry back to Auckland rather than fly.” Herald reported.

“It appears to me there was a problem there with it or whether the problem had been created by the work carried out on who knows, but it just seems a coincidence that an engine they were working on explodes two days later.” A passenger said.

Swine Flu Paralyzes New Zealand

New Zealand Flu Paralyzes the Swines

WELCOME to all of you foreign visitors who are visiting New Zealand this winter. We can’t guarantee you a warm welcome because too many of our intellectually challenged staff are down with New Zealand flu. However we can guarantee you a bout of nasty New Zealand flu to last you throughout your stay here and beyond.

Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU for sharing our New Zealand flu viral mutations.

“New Zealand’s swine flu tally rose to 386 yesterday, though health officials say the real number is likely to be in the [tens of ] thousands, as regional authorities have stopped routine testing.” The Dominion Post Said.

Another Air New Zealand Flying Coffin Forced to Land

Flying Air New Zealand?

YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR **** MIND!

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

—An Air New Zealand Flying Coffin pilot with strong imagination quoting the character played by Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner just before crashing his Airbus into the sea!!

Airbus Must Come Clean

The Moderators have been expecting another Air New Zealand Airbus A320 to plunge into the sea (again), based on the airline’s safety statistics, but Air France beat the kiwis to it!

The probability remains that the next major air disaster would occur as a result of an Air New Zealand Airbus crashing into the sea [with a certainty of 0.74]

Air New Zealand plane flew with cracked windshield

By MICHAEL FOX – Stuff.co.nz – Last updated 15:38 22/06/2009

An Air New Zealand plane en route from Auckland to Wellington was forced to turn back this morning after pilots noticed a crack in the cockpit windscreen.

A spokeswoman for the airline said the crack had appeared in the outer pane of the Captain’s side cockpit window.

“Pilots followed standard operating procedure and returned to Auckland as a precautionary measure,” she said.

“The aircraft landed without incident at Auckland, with passengers re-accommodated on an alternative aircraft.”

The plane is being inspected by engineers and is expected to return to service later today.
