The 1930s bring growing maturity to aviation as the first international airlines burst onto the scene conquering distance and introducing new luxury flying. The once struggling Qantas offers its Great Flying Boats for trips to Singapore and then London, including a full dinner service, your own bed and golf putting in the hall; all at 10,000 feet. But it won't last. When World War Two arrives, aviation reveals its darker side. The bombing of Darwin brings war directly to Australian soil and the honeymoon and adventuring era for Aussie flyers is over. The war will change everything.
