About this Event

The Great War stimulated development in aircraft and engines. The winning aircraft of the Great Air Race, the Vickers Vimy, was the culmination of these advances. Find out what flying in the Vickers Vimy was really like, from modern-day pilots who flew a replica built decades later.

Presenter: Ken Lai

The Great Air Race Talks are presented by the Darwin Aviation Museum as part of the Great Air Race Centenary program of events, supported by the Northern Territory Government.


Thanks to the Fannie Bay History & Heritage Society, Northern Territory Library, Northern Territory Archives Centre, State Library of South Australia and South Australian Aviation Museum for their assistance with research and materials for the Great Air Race Talks.
