Mike Milln’s profile of the 1969 UK-Australia Air Race commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1919 race won by Ross and Keith Smith in Vickers Vimy G-EAOU, is derived from chapter 35 of his book “Wing Tips, The Story of the Royal Aero Club of South Australia – Book 2 – 1941-1986”. If the profile interests you in obtaining the book, you can do so at SAAM or through www.mikemillnbooks.com.
Chris Doudy has written a fascinating profile of his father’s company Commodore Aviation’s experience with the Aero 145, one of which – VH-WWC and later re-registered as VH-ZCL – is now at SAAM awaiting reassembly.
Chas Schaedel has continued his “Brother-in-Arms” series of profiles of siblings serving as airmen in the Great War with this new profile of Peterborough boys Charles and Laurence Matulich.
