2020 Australia Stamp & Medallion Cover - 100 Years Civil Aviation

A plane fashioned from wood, wire and fabric, an open cockpit, basic maps and no radio equipment. These seem unlikely ingredients for success in an attempt to fly half-way around the world.

Yet, only 16 years after the Wright brothers achieved the world's first powered and sustained aero plane flight, Australia's own pioneering brothers of aviation, Captain Ross Smith and Lieutenant Keith Smith, took up the challenge, proposed by the Australian Government, to complete the first flight from England to Australia.

Mintage of only 1919
