'Solo Flight' takes the reader into the skies on the journey of a lifetime.
Alone in the cockpit of a tiny two-seat aircraft, the author gazed down upon both the raw beauty of Australia's most remote regions and the spectacular harbours and city skylines. From the first stirring to fly around the island continent, to the moment when the propeller fell silent for the last time, the effort, experience and emotion of this very special flight is revealed.
Nearly 200 images bring this story to life, while well chosen words paint an equally vivid canvas. Beyond the 7,500 miles that passed beneath his wings, the author tells a tale of remote communities, forgotten heroes and family bonds that are stronger than life and death.
Now in 'Solo Flight' he shares every heartbeat of this magnificent adventure.
