Incidents and Interviews on a Leisurely Journey by Air from Australia to Britain.
'If you were in a hurry you could travel from Australia to Britain in a week - or less. Airline schedules are constantly being speeded up, and a time will soon come when London will be only a couple of days' flying distance from Sydney for ordinary passengers and mails.' From the Introduction.
