Lost…without trace? Brian Chadwick & the missing Dragonfly
By Richard Waugh

On 12 February 1962 Dragonfly ZK-AFB went missing on a scenic flight from Christchurch to Milford Sound. The search for the aircraft, its pilot Brian Chadwick and four passengers, was headline news in New Zealand and Australia. In spite of the largest aerial search ever undertaken in New Zealand and one of the most extensive in the South Pacific, nothing was found.

This book brings together many strands of the enduring story; an entrepreneurial pilot, pioneering air charter work, a veteran biplane airliner, scenic flying over mountainous terrain, overseas tourist passengers including a honeymoon couple, ongoing search initiatives - and the personal quest by pilot friend Brian Waugh.

Illustrated by many photographs, this book investigates the fascinating story, revealing new insights into the aircraft's disappearance. Aviation historian Richard Waugh continues his father's pursuit of the most-searched-for aircraft in New Zealand and poses a unique challenge to readers: Will this book contribute to the solving of the mystery?
