Flight of the Kiwi
« on: March 24, 2010, 07:20:12 PM »
Kiwis are a bird that can't fly  - - - but in 1969 Cliff Tait showed the world that one Kiwi could fly.



Setting out as a one-man mission to publicize New Zealand to the world, Cliff and his New Zealand made plane ended up making history. No one had ever attempted to fly solo around the world in such a tiny one-engine plane before.

Cliffs book (free download by Cliff himself, here>) "Flight of the Kiwi" recounts every detail of a flight that captured the attention of the whole world.
