As the Centenary of the momentous First Official Air Mail Flight in Australia, flown by Maurice Guillaux, draws closer, an amazing reenactment flight is planned to take place. In this issue, ASP begins to explore the feats and character of this great French aviator. His contribution to Australian aviation was so significant we really should declare him an honorary Aussie. And we find a way to interpret how the Aussie ladies of the day viewed this charming flyer.
