100th Anniversary of first commercial flight above Sydney

Michelle Morgan - Wednesday, November 13, 2019

It's 100 years since aviator, Nigel Love, flew movie photographer, Billy Marshall, on the first commercial flight over Sydney. 

[Nigel Love in the cockpit of a Curtiss Jenny biplane / Milton C. Kent, National Library of Australia, 4922163] 

To commemorate this significant historical event, my award-winning novel, Flying through Clouds, is on sale until 31 December 2019 for $15 (includes postage). 

Bookshops can order copies from the distributor, John Reed Books, and individual copies can be ordered on my website.

Hope you enjoy Flying through Clouds!
