In 1919 two remarkable South Australian brothers, Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith, won the Great Air Race – making the first ever flight from England to Australia in just 28 days. The aircraft that got them home – the historic Vickers Vimy – can still be seen at Adelaide Airport. In 2019 the Epic Flight Centenary group have formed to celebrate this historic achievement through a program of events coordinated by the History Trust of South Australia, to celebrate the extraordinary achievement and inspire a new generation to strive for new horizons.
