Series

Keep clear of the propellors! 1928.

Summary

The Southern Cross arrived in Sydney to a tumultuous welcome from a crowd estimated at 300,000. As the plane taxied to a halt, Atlantic Union Oil Company executive Captain Clive Chateau ran out to warn the accompanying police to beware of the propellers. The cockpit of the Southern Cross was open to the elements, so that Kingsford Smith and Ulm wore flying suits, unlike Lyon and Warner, who were protected further back in the cabin. Source: Curator's notes, Mitchell Library, 2002.
