2003 marks the centenary of powered flight with the Wright brothers' flight into history in December 1903. Beneath Southern Skies is a visual celebration of the important role that aviation has played in shaping Australia.
The world's largest island, Australia was still in its infancy when powered flight emerged and began to change the world. Australia owes much to the early pioneers of aviation who, in their fabric-covered wooden flying machines, paved the way for Australia's airlines, mail runs, mining ventures and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. This book explores the development of Australia's aviation industry through the eyes of the people whose lives depend on its existence.
Illustrated throughout with breathtaking photography, 'Beneath Southern Skies' is a must of all aviation enthusiasts, young and old.
