Who Are The Charles’?

On 31 May 1928, Australians Charles Kingsford Smith and Charles Ulm left California in the aircraft 'Southern Cross' to attempt the first flight across the pacific. Flying via Hawaii and Fiji, they reached Brisbane nine days later after travelling 11,889 kilometers. The Charles' pays homage to and honours the memory of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith and Charles Ulm, Australian aviation royalty and co-pilots who changed the future of flying in Australia.
