Summary
"Australia's aviation history is a saga of daring feats, can-do attitude, pig-headed visionaries, iron-fisted politicians and warring pilots; of humble beginnings and mega deals. The story begins in World War One with the death-defying exploits of four bold young airmen - Norman Brearley, Charles Kingsford Smith, Wilmot Hudson Fysh and Paul McGiness - who would go on to establish Australia's first airlines. Conquering the tyranny of distance within our vast continent and between it and Europe, they faced difficult, often dangerous conditions - marred at the start by accidents and fatalities, but highlighted by ground-breaking headline-grabbing flights. Behind the scenes, however, battles were fought in boardrooms and with backers and bureaucrats to keep the airlines aloft." -- Container
