The inquest into the Fox Glacier plane crash has wrapped up this afternoon.
This week has seen two likely theories emerge.
One of those is that overloading and the plane being off balance were major factors in the crash, while the other centres on engine or control failure as a more likely scenario.
Family members of some of those killed say they have confidence the coroner will deliver the right recommendations in his findings to prevent a recurrence - but accept that the true cause may never be known.
The son of sky dive operator Rod Miller who was also killed in the crash, says he's pleased other experts were able to dispute the findings of the Transport Accident Investigation Commission, which he says was incomplete.
Coroner McElrea will now consider the evidence and produce his findings at a later date.
