The Greatest Air Race
SBS  |  December 8, 2019

In November 1919, a hardy fleet of aviators took off from England in a pioneering attempt to fly across the planet, to Australia. Many didn't make it. Twenty-eight days later, Ross Smith and his crew landed in Darwin, winning the great air race. This documentary celebrates the centenary of that landmark race. The flight was as awe-inspiring in its day as man landing on the moon 50 years later.
