The memoirs of a pioneer aviator.
Story of the author's adventures with Charles Kingsford-Smith , Ulm and others. Quote from foreword: "I remember the late Sir Charles Kingsford Smith once telling me that the 'Southern Cross' and her crew would have been lost on that first flight from England to America had it not been for Stannage's experience and cool confidence in handling the radio gear when hours of blind flight in electrically-charged fog threw all compasses out of action and the flight was saved by radio direction finding".
