from Hero to Zero
This is the story of Capt Rod Lovell and the successful ditching of DC-3, VH-EDC into Botany Bay (Sydney, Australia) on 24th April 1994.

Bureau of Air Safety Investigation (BASI) had 2 years.   

Sully had 208 seconds.   

I had 46 seconds.

Exciting news.... My book "From Hero To Zero" will be launched, soon.

This is to inform my aviation friends and the general public "the persecution I have suffered by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the Bureau of Air Safety Investigation (BASI).
A former RAAF Deputy Director of Flying Safety (Wg Cdr John Thynne) who sat in on my BASI interview, congratulated me on my cockpit resource management, saying it was the best example he had heard*. It was a real pity that a little later he was asked to leave the investigation. When I questioned John Thynne later about the BASI report, he said that as his line of thinking about the accident had not agreed with BASI's he was asked to leave.
( *, no the DC3 did not have a Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR), my press-to-talk switch stuck ON and therefore the control tower recorded the cockpit voices).

You would presume that the office of Commonwealth Ombudsman was to be respected for its integrity.
Well, This is NOT the case. Please check out Morison and Morison2.
This literally is "The Plane Truth"
