“The History Trust of South Australia is delighted to bring together a group of passionate, enthusiastic stakeholders to raise awareness about one of the world’s most awe-inspiring aviation feats – the first flight from England to Australia in 1919 by South Australian brothers Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith. Supporting the Epic Flight Centenary 2019 is another way the History Trust contributes to our mission: ‘Giving the past a future – now!’.”

– History Trust of South Australia CEO Greg Mackie OAM
