England-Australia (solo), 1929-30 â€”Francis C. Chichester on a D.H. "Moth" ("Gipsy").

Left Croydon December 20. Arrived Port Darwin January 25 (or 27).

Time 5 weeks.

The "bespectacled, adventurous, somewhat gauche but determined young man" was suprised by the fame the flight brought him. "I was only trying to achieve a private target which I had set myself"
