From Hero to Zero is the incredible, true story of Captain Rod Lovell’s unbelievable castigation for doing the very thing he was paid to do – keep his passengers safe.
Imagine being punished for saving lives? Imagine if you only had 46 seconds to save those lives. Imagine if it was one of your loved ones whose life was spared. Would you not hail the man who saved lives a hero? The Australian media and public embraced Captain Rod Lovell as a hero. The aviation authorities brought him down to zero.
From Hero to Zero will take you on Rod's journey from a young farm boy with a dream to fly planes to his success at joining the RAAF where he was trained as a pilot. His passion for flying took him on some wild adventures that came to an abrupt halt when the ditching of South Pacific Airmotive into Botany Bay, Sydney in April 1994 labelled him at fault due to pilot error. Find out the truth behind the cover-up and botched investigation that ruined his career.
