TAIC accident report is held up due the CVR court case (NZ ALPA won an injuction stopping release of transcript, and TAIC refuseing to publish Acc Report without the transcript). Newspapers at the time reported that U/carrage failure was reported by pax and may have distracted pilots. A/c hit ground at about 6 nm from runway 25 (a new VOR approach since you were in NZ Michael) and while in cloud.
