Drive 01/03/2018

A son of one of the Erebus disaster victims says Air New Zealand’s new safety video, filmed in Antarctica is "crass, arrogant and disrespectful".

David Ling, who lost his mum in the 1979 disaster, says the new film starring Hollywood actor and environmentalist Adrian Grenier has upset a number of family members of those lost in the Erebus disaster.

Mr Ling said Air New Zealand is "picking at the scab" of the memory of those lost. 

There is also renewed calls for there to be a national memorial to those lost on flight TE901.

David Ling joins Stephen McIvor on RadioLIVE Drive.
