• Short Summary

    Only one wonderful record survives here - Captain Bert Hinkler arrives in Australia after a solo flight of 15 days.

  • Description

    Title and section of footage missing - according to paperwork it showed Captain Malcolm Campbell in his 'wonder car' at 206.9 miles per hour.

    Intertitle reads: " ...and Capt. Bert Hinkler flies to Australia... alone... in light 35/80 h.p. Avian-Avro in 15 days."

    C/U of Captain Bert Hinkler in flying gear and goggles, talking and laughing with people. This is presumably just after landing in the Australian airfield.
