An exciting story based on the very first long-distance flight to Australia, and return to London, in 1926.
Alan Cobham wanted to help Britain take a lead in international air travel so he organised and financed this first flight to Australia and back.
Read how Cobham and engineer Arthur Ward took on the challenges of more than 50 landing strips through the Middle East and Asia, as well as hairy river and sea-landings where no strips existed. See inside the cockpit of the DeHavilland DH50J and meet the characters that helped them along the route. Familiar as Cobham was with long distance flying, taking on this journey in a small seaplane offered a new and dangerous adventure.
