Adelaide Published by Author 1990 0646002740 / 9780646002743 1st Edition Hardback 
Small Quarto Size [approx 17.5cm x 24cm]. Very Good condition in pictorial laminated boards. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. 128 pages Charles James (Jimmy) Melrose was an Australian aviator who held a number of flying records, was the youngest and only solo flier to finish the Melbourne (Macrobertson) Centenary Air Race in 1934. He flew a DH80A Puss Moth named 'My Hildergarde' to England just after his 21st birthday in order to compete in the race, reaching Croydon in just over 8 days. That in itself was an unofficial record and astounded everyone. Then in November 1935 he was again returning to Australia in a Percival Gull Four when he helped in the unsuccessful search for Sir Charles Kingsford Smith around the Bay of Bengal. Melrose had been the last person to sight Kingsford Smith's Lockheed Altair in the night air as it flew above him. ID11419
