The World Flies In...And Darwin takes off!

Darwin International Airport recently launched a history book titled The World Flies in…and Darwin takes off! by celebrated local historians Peter and Sheila Forrest. The breadth of content and quality of this publication demonstrates the extensive history of aviation in the Northern Territory and contextualises it within broader Australian aviation history.

Peter and Sheila Forrest have so far published 22 major books about the people and places of northern and inland Australia. They have also authored innumerable newspaper stories and presented many broadcasts, films and videos.

The World Flies in…and Darwin takes off! is available at all good NT bookstores and News Travels in the Darwin Airport terminal. It is the perfect gift for Territorians interested in sharing part of the NT's fascinating  avaition history with friends, family and colleagues.
