Australian pilot, the commander of the first America-to-Australia airplane flight on 5/31/1928. The record-setting journey originated in Oakland, CA and ended in Brisbane. As planes of the day could not fly extremely long distances, stops were made in Honolulu, HI and the Fiji Islands. During WW I Smith served in the Royal Flying Corps.
Captain Smith was lost in 1935 on a flight to Singapore.
