Fords and Flying MachinesBook - 2013
George thinks Mr McGinness and Mr Fysh are too cocky and too flaming young. But I reckon if you've been to war, flown flying machines and shot guns at other flying machines... then you can't be too young for anything. Jack McLaren's dream is to be an automobile mechanic. When his uncle offers him an apprenticeship in Longreach, Jack is soon on the first automobile ever to travel the Gult Track from Longreach to Katherine. The long trip to central Queensland heralds something new: the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Service is about to be born.
