The Greatest Air Race

The Greatest Air Race (2019)

In November 1919, four Australians became the first men to fly across the globe. The Greatest Air Race is a one-hour documentary celebrating the incredible first flight by South Australian brothers Sir Ross Smith and Sir Keith Smith, and their mechanics Wally Shiers and Jim Bennett. Theirs was an extraordinary feat of endurance, and a milestone for mankind. Yet 100 years later, these four men are all but forgotten. As the centenary approaches, it's time to inspire a new generation with their achievements. Presented and narrated by former NASA astronaut Andy Thomas.
