Description

This is an original print of the 'Copy of Notes made during a Flight from London to Brussels and back by Giant Handley Page Aeroplane October 1919' recorded by James Chalmers. 

The 16 page booklet details the flight and is a copy of the notes Chalmers made en route.

He begins the notes with an introduction "Numerous friends having expressed interest in my flight from London to Brussels and back, and a desire for a copy of the notes I made en route, I ahve had these pritned for private circulation in the hope that my pleasant experience on the Giant Handley Page Aeroplane "Penguin" may induce many others, particulary in Australia, to embrace opportunities to fly and hasten the day when Aviation will be more general. ..."

The notes cover the flight on the Giant Handley Page aeroplane 'Penguin" on October 3rd 1919, and the return flight on October 7th 1919. The notes are time stamped, starting with the original take off at 12.20. Chalmers also details of his four day stay in Brussels. At the back of the booklet Chalmers has written a summary of 'Aviation In Australia - My Opinion of its Future', and includes the specifications of the 'Penguin' aeroplane and history of Handley Page. 

It is in good condition with with very few creases, and the paper is only slightly coloured with age, as per the photos. 

The booklet measures 20cm tall x 11cm wide.
