The story of the Double Sunrise Flights: DVD
In 1943 Qantas flew top secret flights from Perth to Sri Lanka (Ceylon) to reconnect Britain to Australia. The flights were under constant threat from the Japanese and would fly for up to 32 hours non-stop. The crew and their three passengers would see two sunrises on their flights giving them the name of the Double Sunrise Flights. This documentary interviews the last remaining pilot from the Double Sunrise Flights, 93 year old Rex Senior. Rex recalls his times spent on the flights and how the crews were never recognized for what they contributed to Australia’s history. Narrated by John McNeill (Underbelly - The Golden Mile) and Directed by Daniel Bunker.
Also included are Rex Senior's eBook: Double Sunrise, A3 printable 70th anniversary poster, Double Sunrise printable certificate, and 3 desktop wallpapers.
