Charles Kingsford Smith - DVD
Known to millions of Australians simply as 'Smithy', Sir Charles Kingsford Smith was one of Australia's true twentieth century legends. This DVD is a superb collection of archival footage of Kingsford Smith's greatest achievements, and makes an ideal companion to the best selling book by acclaimed author and journalist Peter Fitzsimons.
Kingsford Smith was the first person to fly across the Pacific, he broke the record for the fastest flight from England to Australia, and at one point he held more long-distance flying records than anyone else on the planet. He was also one of Australia's war heroes, receiving the Military Cross for gallantry in action after being injured during the First World War.
