Comments: How Qantas, with the assistance of the RAAF broke the Japanese blockade of Australia during World War II, from Perth. These flights were the longest over-water regular service in the world at the time. This tells of the men who made it possible, and the aircraft they flew – firstly Catalinas and then Liberators. Also includes the service provided by post-war Lancastrians and jets to South Africa. Includes list of aircrew.
