Talking History: The Epic Flight that Shrank the World

A large crowd greets the Smith crew in their Vickers Vimy at Northfield after their historic flight from England to Australia (PRG 280/1/19/55, State Library of SA )

Join us for a special Talking History session on the Epic Flight Centenary 2019, celebrating the first flight from England to Australia by South Australian brothers Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith. Experts say that in its day the feat was as awe-inspiring as man landing on the moon. We’ll journey back in time to see how the incredible feat was achieved, and discuss the legacies of a flight that shrank the world.
