Helicopter company licence finally suspended, 6 months after fatal crash

Civil Aviation Authority finally suspends the Air Operating Certificate of Alpine Adventures

The South Island helicopter firm involved in the fatal crash at Fox Glacier last year has finally been grounded over safety issues six months later.

The Civil Aviation Authority [finally took their thumb out of their backside and] suspended the Air Operating Certificate (AOC) of James Patrick Scott, whose company, Alpine Adventures, has operated flights in Fox Glacier, Franz Josef, and Tekapo.

Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) director Graeme Harris confirmed the suspension while the CAA investigated concerns about the safety of the operation.

Seven people were killed in the November 2015 crash including the Dutch-born 28-year-old pilot Mitch Gameren, four visitors from England—Andrew Virco of Cambridge, 50, Katharine Walker of Cambridge, 51, Nigel Edwin Charlton of Hampshire, 66, Cynthia Charlton of Hampshire, 70, and two tourists from  New South Wales, Asutralia—Sovannmony Leang, 27, and Josephine Gibson, 29.

How Many Foreigners Killed in NZ Since 2000?

About 3,500 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and 20,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.

The State’s other Stinking Secrets

Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:

To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Minitru [“Ministry of Transport”.]

About 2.7 million licensed but not necessary qualified drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.

A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]

Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent.  And over the last 10 years the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent.

Today is DAY 165 of the latest NZ TOURISTS or truth? (police censorship of road fatalities) campaign

  • Blog estimate: About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year. [Most probably] up to 370 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016

How do they do it?

Police manipulate the road toll by censoring reports of fatal crashes, while the Ministry of Transport simply delete the unwanted road fatalities, even from their published records.

Only one road fatality recorded, despite at least two reported fatal crashes since Thursday. There were also six people critically injured, whose fates remain unknown.

Homelessness

UN investigating Cork homelessness crisis

The UN has questioned the Irish government over the lack of emergency shelter, safe drinking water and sanitation for homeless people in Cork.

The office of the UN high commissioner for human rights acted after a complaint from the House the Homeless and Hydrate the Homeless groups in Cork. The UN had raised similar concerns with Irish officials nine months ago but has had no response.  http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/un-investigating-cork-homelessness-crisis-8hg8wzmw9

Of course, they would be prevented by Helen Clark, if they were to investigate homelessness in Auckland.

Convicted trout poacher: NZ justice system ‘racist’

Thomas Tawha, the man jailed for poaching trout alongside his cousin David Leef, says the justice system is prejudiced against Māori.

This follows Ara Adams-Tamatea’s Facebook post, pointing out the difference in sentencing between a group of white men, and Leef, that gained huge traction online last week.

It read: “Both parties broke the law, and both parties were sorry. One party committed burglaries to the tune of $80k for fun while the other stole 10 fish to feed his family. Both crimes in the eyes of the law and I’m not disputing that. One gets to “serve time” at home with their family while the other has to serve jail time and leave his family. Take a wild guess who has to go to jail for stealing 10 fish. Not 80,000 fish or $80,000 worth of fish. 10 fish VS $80k of private property.” http://www.newshub.co.nz/nznews/convicted-trout-poacher-nz-justice-system-racist-2016052912

The Top Cow and Her Judges

More complaints about top Cow Dame Sian Elias’ judges, but farm says rules ‘ridiculous’

Judges owned by the top cow Dame Sian Elias have wandered into Canterbury waterways at least three times since a warning issued in January.

Stock from The Lakes station in North Canterbury have been in Lake Sumner, and in the Hurunui River, which is a clear breach of the rules.

Environment Canterbury (ECan) issued Elias and Fletcher a warning after a holidaymaker photographed their cows standing in Lake Taylor, which borders a Department of Conservation (Doc) campsite, in January.

After an investigation, ECan determined they had breached the rules but stopped short of issuing a fine, saying it was an isolated incident.   http://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/80360205/more-complaints-about-top-judge-dame-sian-elias-cows

ECan has since used various excuses in February, March and April to not issue fines, despite overabundance of odorous evidence, cow excrement on both sides of the Hurunui River, and both in Lake Taylor and Lake Sumner.

Victims of Fox Glacier helicopter crash identified

Posted by te2ataria on November 22, 2015

More than 3,400 overseas visitors, international students,  foreign workers and recent emigrants have lost their lives and about 18,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.

Had they known the risks…

The names of those people believed to have been on the helicopter when it crashed on Fox Glacier have now been released by the police.

Police have not revealed the duration of the victims stay in New Zealand prior to the fatal crash. An English tourist who had survived an Australian holiday, was “road-murdered” in a two-car collision within 10 hours of arriving in New Zealand, about two weeks ago.

The latest victims of Fox Glacier crash are:

  • Mitchell Paul GAMEREN, 28 [originally from Holland?] Queenstown (Pilot)
  • Andrew VIRCO, 50, Cambridge, UK
  • Katharine WALKER, 51, Cambridge
  • Nigel Edwin CHARLTON, 66, Hampshire, UK
  • Cynthia CHARLTON, 70, Hampshire
  • Sovannmony LEANG, 27, New South Wales, Australia
  • Josephine GIBSON, 29, New South Wales

Katharine Walker was reportedly the head of Radiotherapy at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, England.


RIP. Katharine Walker, 51, from Cambridge, England, was one of the seven people  killed in the Fox Glacier crash. Would she have chosen to travel to New Zealand, let alone fly a helicopter, had she known the risks?

A 2004 study of accidents between 1990 and 2002 found that New Zealand had five times the rate of small aircraft crashes than the US, and four times that of the UK. [NZ Govt Stats]

Fox Glacier victims nationalities revealed

Saturday, 21 November 2015 – 8:56pm

Tasman Police said:

“It is believed two [of the helicopter crash victims] were Australians and four were from the United Kingdom. Formal identification of those people will take some time”. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/fox-glacier-victims-nationalities

“The helicopter that crashed is believed to be a Eurocopter “Squirrel” operated by local firm Alpine Adventures,” according to a report.

The police have not said how long the tourists had stayed alive in New Zealand before the fatal crash. An English tourist who had survived an Australian holiday, was “road-murdered” in a two-car collision within 1o hours of arriving in New Zealand, about two weeks  ago.

Other details of the crash:

  • The helicopter crashed in a crevasse 2500ft (762m) up the valley and debris was scattered hundreds of metres around the crash site, said Inspector John Canning, adding that the recovery would be very difficult in the dangerous terrain..
  • The company involved is reportedly “Alpine Adventures”.
  • The chopper took off despite bad weather. “Weather conditions were poor at Fox Glacier at the time of the crash.”
  • St John was alerted to the crash at 11.05am on Saturday.

Helicopter Crashes in New Zealand

An inordinate number of air crashes involving helicopters and planes of all sizes occur in NZ each year. Helicopters flown by NZ pilots, both civilian and military, are also known to have crashed in other countries.  (Search blog content for some of the details).

Nine people were killed when a plane carrying skydivers to Fox Glacier crashed shortly after takeoff in September 2010.

Inquest into Melbourne Brothers Tragic Ice Deaths

Posted by te2ataria on December 3, 2009

sent by an Aussie reader [edited by TEAA]

Farcical Inquest began into Melbourne brothers deaths caused by NZ tourist authorities negligence

The parents of two Melbourne brothers, Ashish and Akshay Miranda, who were crushed to death by falling ice at New Zealand’s Fox Glacier in January, have criticized signage at the deadly tourist site.


Winnie and Ronnie Miranda grieve after the funeral of their sons Ashish and Akshay, who died in a glacier accident in New Zealand. Photo: Joe Armao/ theage.con.au. Image may be subject to copyright.

The two brothers  were holidaying in the South Island with their parents, when they moved close to the glacier to take photos.

A large chink of ice fell off from the face of the glacier and buried the brothers, as horrified tourists looked on.

The body of Ashish Miranda, who was an aerospace engineer, was found a few hours later, however, his student brother’s body was discovered in a stream nearby a week later.

The body of his student brother was found in a stream below the glacier a week later.

In a previous incident two Australian tourists had been injured, one seriously.

Scumbag police constable Tony Le Sueur [pronounced “sewer”] said the ice fell from the glacier’s terminal face hitting the two “bloody stupid” tourists who got too close to take a better look at the terminal face.

Understandably, the grief-stricken parents did not wish to travel to New Zealand to have insult added to their tragic injury by the country’s tick blue line.

However they sent a letter to the court calling their sons’ deaths a “cruel irony” because the doomed holiday had been a 25th wedding anniversary gift from Ashish and Akshay.

The Mirandas said they were devastated by the deaths and had a bleak future without their beloved sons.


Miranda Brothers Ashish and Ashkay were crushed under more than 100 tons of ice at New Zealand’s tourist deathtrap, Fox Glacier.

They complained bitterly about the warning signs at the glacier, asserting that they were confusing.

After the double tragedy,  and a few other deaths and injuries, finally the tourist body responsible for the glacier decided to put up larger signs near the glacier.

Tim Groser and Rob Jewell, as well as the tourism authority  in New Zealand, must take full responsibility for the homicides because they breached their ‘relevant duty of care’ by failing to have the appropriate safety procedures in place that would have prevented the avoidable double tragedy.

Had the Miranda brothers not visited Fox Glacier, or New Zealand for that matter, in all probability, they would have been still alive today !

Another “stupid” tourist injured at Prime Deathtrap

Posted by te2ataria on March 18, 2009

Another “stupid” tourist bites the dust at one of New Zealand’s prime deathtraps.

A Czech tourist [this one on a guided climb] was airlifted to Greymouth hospital today after a large chunk of ice fell on him at Fox Glacier, one of  New Zealand’s prime deathtraps.

The tourist is believe to have suffered serious  injuries, however his condition was not known tonight.

This incident follows the govt/corporate manslaughter of the Australian brothers who were killed when ice fell on them at Fox Glacier in January.

Ashish and Akshay Miranda who were holidaying with their parents were buried under tons of falling ice, when they approached the glacier to take photos.

“A former guide at the glacier warned at the time that better fencing and more signs were needed, as many tourists ignored safety barriers.” A report said.
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10562368

Given the billions of dollars foreign tourists waste in this country, you would have thought the authorities give a damn about their safety and put a few warning signs out there.

Are New Zealand Visitors “Bloody Stupid?”

Posted by te2ataria on January 13, 2009

submitted by a reader

They must be “bloody stupid” because they are committing ecocide by visiting New Zealand!

But don’t call them “bloody stupid” when you are in gross breach of a RELEVANT DUTY OF CARE to protect them!

You can’t call the visitors “bloody stupid” because they are curious.

In the latest tragic, but avoidable incident two young brothers lost their lives when large blocks of ice fell on them as they approached the terminal face of Fox Glacier to take photographs.

Were they “bloody stupid?” Hardly. The elder of two Australian brothers, Ashish Miranda, 24, was an aerospace engineer who worked for Boeing. The younger brother, Akshay, 22, studied engineering at Monash University in Australia and was due to finish his studies this year.

Not only the two Australian brothers were not “bloody stupid,” despite their Indian ancestry [as the supremacist police constable Le Sueur would want you to believe,] they were clearly individuals with above average intelligence.

Who is responsible for the homicides?

The deaths of the Miranda brothers was a clear case of corporate manslaughter; more particularly, it was government-assisted corporate homicide.  By definition, it was a gross breach of a RELEVANT DUTY OF CARE owed by the organization/corporation/government to the deceased.

New Zealand’s conservation Minister, Tim Groser, said it was a “tragedy of almost unimaginable proportions [for the parents] to lose both sons in one tragedy.” Fox Glacier Guiding chief executive Rob Jewell said tourists “get seduced by the glacier and want to get up closer.”

Tim Groser and Rob Jewell, as well as the tourism authority  in New Zealand, must take full responsibility for the homicides because they breached their ‘relevant duty of care’ by failing to have the appropriate safety procedures in place that would have prevented the avoidable double tragedy.

Had the Miranda brothers not visited Fox Glacier, in all probability, they would have been still alive today!

Two “bloody stupid” tourists crushed under ice

Posted by te2ataria on January 8, 2009

Two “bloody stupid” tourists in their twenties lost their lives at New Zealand’s Fox Glacier

Scumbag police constable Tony Le Sueur [pronounced “sewer”] said the ice fell from the glacier’s terminal face hitting tourists who got too close to take a better look at the terminal face.

Brothers Ashish and Akshay Miranda were killed when some 100 tonnes of ice fell on them as they took photographs at New Zealand’s Fox Glacier. Ashish Miranda, 24, was an aerospace engineer working for Boeing. The younger brother, Akshay, 22, was an engineering student at Monash University, due to finish his studies this year. The Indian family had emigrated to Australia.

The nincompoop police recovered the body of one man using a digger last night but were afraid to look for the second body.

Fox Glacier Guiding chief executive did not want to comment on the issue of unguided tourists swarming the glacier. [Hint, hint! Remember the Japanese mountain guide on Mt Cook who was left to die because he didn’t have a concession?]

In a previous incident two Australian tourists had been injured, one seriously.

Scumbag pc  Le Sueur had described the pair as “bloody stupid,” because they wanted to have a better look at the glacier’s terminal face!

Fox Glacier will be open for business tomorrow, as if nothing had happened.
