Article from Christchurch Press, New Zealand

This article was sent to me and is from my home country's Christchurch Press. Not sure of the date but it is still a developing story. Of particular note is how the investigators are still on their way to the scene.

NZ Herald Article on Flight 11

I have found an article dated May 24, 1962 New Zealand time (ie May 23 1962 US time) from the New Zealand Herald, Auckland's newspaper.

It includes a quote from a Continental Airlines spokesman that they hoped the aircraft may have landed somewhere but also says there was wreckage found. It seems as if it was written in a hurry as information was still coming in. Nevertheless it's the first time I've seen any mention of Flight 11 in my local (New Zealand-based) press.

second edition of paperback The Missouri Crash

Owing to several typographical errors in the first edition of The Missouri Crash paperback edition I am republishing a second edition to fix these. Despite extensive proofreading I am afraid to say Amazon were not as diligent in some aspects. The new edition should be out by Jan 1 2019.

N70775 reused

The N series registration of the 707 operating as Flight 11, N70775, was reused between 2005 and 2007 on a Bell 206B helicopter. The helicopter was subsequently cancelled from the register in 2007 when it was sold to Colombia.

The Missouri Crash Second Edition

Within days of publishing my book "The Missouri Crash" I have noticed a couple of errors despite exhaustive proof reading by different parties.

I have re-published the book with these errors corrected.

Russell Wolfe

The family of Flight 11 passenger Russell Wolfe visited Unionville recently and were shown around the town by Ronnie Cook. They visited the Putnam County museum . Prior to their 2018 visit they were unaware of the memorial or the services held in 2010 and 2012 . Many thanks to Maribeth deHaven for letting me know of their visit. Yet again another family has hopefully found a sense of closure all these years later.
