Bert Hinkler made two remarkable long distance solo flights in this remarkable aircraft. In 1927, he flew London to Riga, Latvia. In 1928 he flew London to Darwin, Australia. Over 15 days, he completed the 18000km journey spending 128 hours in the air. In 1929, Bert Hinkler donated this aircraft to the Queensland Government. Tragically Bert Hinkler died in 1933, crashing into the Italian Alps attempting a second London to Australia flight. On display at the Queensland Museum.
