257 Die in Air New Zealand McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 Flight 901 crash in Mount Erebus, Ross Island, Ross Archipelago, Antarctica.

The flight was designed and marketed as a unique sightseeing experience, carrying an experienced Antarctic guide who pointed out scenic features and landmarks using the aircraft public-address system, while passengers enjoyed a low-flying sweep of McMurdo Sound. The flights left and returned to New Zealand the same day.
