2014-06-26 Shortly after safely landing flight NZ175 from Perth to Auckland the Pilot in Command, Ann Barbarich, collapsed from a suspected Brain Aneurysm. The Pilot was under going final flight training at the time. Another Pilot took control and taxied the aircraft to stand where medical personnel boarded the aircraft and attended to Mrs Barbarich. Sadly Mrs Barbarich passed away two days later with her family by her bedside in hospital. Our thoughts are with her and her friends, colleagues and family. C18W21Y263 Air New Zealand ZK-NZE Active
