Regular price $130.00 Sale

Less than 16 years after man’s first powered flight, and barely 12 months since the end of the First World War, an epic race was commissioned. £10,000 was the prize money, and the target, to be the first to fly from England to Australia in less than 30 days. Seven two-man crews committed to an attempt, thus beginning several months of drama, tragedy, and adventure...

100 years later, we look back in awe, as a pair of Aussies could fly the huge distance between England and Australia in less than 30 days – a truly inspiring feat.
