The World's Greatest Pioneering Aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith was described by his contemporaries as the greatest man ever to fly.

First a war hero, then a record-breaking aviator, his wartime exploits with the Royal Flying Corps earned him the Military Cross.

It was the first of many honours, including a knighthood bestowed in 1932 for services to aviation.

He was the first to fly across the Pacific Ocean and went on to break many more aviation records. 1997 marks the centenary of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith's birth.
