Inhaltsangabe: I can't recall how she cooked my eggs for breakfast, or what scent she preferred, or which song was her favourite. I don't know what her favourite colour was or if she'd ever had her heart broken, but I remember the weight of her love, how a room felt with her in it. 2017 will mark the thirtieth anniversary of the Helderberg plane crash - the worst air disaster in the history of South African aviation. It was an event that shocked the nation and for eightyear- old Dominique Luck (nee Ackermann), it was the defining moment of her young life. Her mother, Gina, and baby sister, Samantha, were killed when flight SA 295 plunged into the Indian Ocean off Mauritius at midnight on 28 November 1987. There were no survivors. Speculation immediately spread about the cause of the fire that caused the crash and possible political motivations, but despite renewed investigation during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the answers have never been forthcoming. For nearly thirty years Dominique and other family members of the ill-fated passengers have been struggling to rebuild shattered lives and find personal closure. Dominique's father, Jean Ackermann, never recovered and essentially abandoned her as a child. After excelling in school in a bid to win his acknowledgement - and failing - Dominique embarked on a mission of self-destruction, but her true crisis came when her own children were born, and her marriage threatened to fall apart. The trauma of losing her mother was brought to the fore and forced her to face up to the issues she had suppressed her whole life. In reaching out for help, at last, she began a painful process of recovery. Dominique's story is paralleled by other children of the Helderberg victims, such as Peter Otzen (now 27), who was born just 10 days after the crash which killed the father he never met, and contemporary artist Lyndi Sales (40), who lost her father when she was 14, and pours her emotions into internationally acclaimed works of art. Surviving Flight 295 puts all-too-human faces to one of the many tragedies of the apartheid regime's maladministration and deceit, but at its heart it is Dominique Luck's story. Surviving Flight 295 sees Dominique realising that it is only in finally leaving her mother behind that she herself can move towards hope and healing. It is a mother-daughter love story and a tale of personal grief and redemption that will resonate with the many South Africans who have experienced or been witness to loss.

Inhaltsangabe: It has been 27 years since the worst air disaster in the history of South African aviation, and it?s been 27 years since Dominique Luck lost her mother and baby sister, Samantha, who were passengers on the aircraft. Flight SA 295 plunged into the Indian Ocean off Mauritius at midnight on 28 November 1987; there were no survivors. It was an event that shocked the nation, and the world, and for eight-year-old Dominique Luck (née Ackermann), it was the defining moment of her young life. Speculation immediately spread about the cause of the fire that led to the crash and possible political motivations, but despite renewed investigation over the years, including during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the answers have never been forthcoming. For nearly 30 years Dominique and other family members of the ill-fated passengers have been struggling to rebuild shattered lives and find personal closure. Left to her own devices as she grew up, and without being guided toward proper grieving, Dominique alternately tried to escape and numb her pain. She dissociated with the story of the Helderberg, avoiding the news for the greater part of her life. Her greatest crisis came when her own children were born: the trauma of losing her mother was brought to the fore and forced her to face up to the issues she had suppressed her whole life. Could she rise to be the parent she had never had? In reaching out, at last, she began a painful process of recovery.
