Description

Michael Smith's Voyage of the Southern Sun

A keen flyer, Michael Smith’s solo circumnavigation of the globe in his small single-engine seaplane, the Southern Sun, earned him the 2016 Australian Geographic Adventurer of the Year award. He shares amazing adventures from his record-breaking seven-month 80-stop journey retracing the 1938 Qantas, Imperial and Pan Am Flying Boat routes between Sydney, Southhampton and New York.

With limited flying experience, no support team and only basic instruments in his tiny flying boat, Smith risked his life to make modern aviation history. His adventures include an unexpected greeting by Special Branch on his arrival in the UK, a near-death experience while leaving Greenland, and a wondrous journey up the Mississippi.

Date: Thursday 2 November 2017

Time: 5:45pm complimentary welcome drink and viewing of `Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year' exhibition. 6:30pm talk followed by Q&A and booksigning.

Cost: $20 General Admission, $18 Concession, $16 AM Members
