Description - King of the Air: The Turbulent Life of Charles Kingsford Smith by Ann Blainey
A revealing portrait of a brilliant and troubled figure - a daredevil of the skies - now available in paperback.
Charles Kingsford Smith was the most commanding flyer of the golden age of aviation. In three short years, he broke records with his astounding and daring voyages- the first trans-Pacific flight from America to Australia, the first circumnavigation around the equator, the first non-stop crossing of the Australian mainland. He did it all with such courage, modesty and charm that Australia and the world fell in love with him. He became a national hero, 'Our Smithy'.
