Quick Overview

.
When this announcement was made by The House of Representatives, Melbourne, in March 1919, it inspired the greatest air race of all time. The risks and challenges have never been equaled. It was only sixteen years since the first aeroplane flight, and the only two aircraft available were flimsy, cranky machines. This book gives a complete account of the race, the reasons for its announcement, the difficulties of organisation and the incredible adventures of the seven competing crews. The author gives an authentic picture of the days when a courageous few were striving to open the airways of the world. 252pp. First published in 1969, this edition 2008
