TALES FROM THE MACROBERTSON AIR RACES
Opens Thu 11 March 2021 - From 11 March to late September 2021
Curated by Noel Jackling, David Thompson and John McCulloch. To celebrate Victoria’s centenary in 1934, Macpherson Robertson sponsored a great air race from England to Melbourne. There were originally 20 entrants of which only 12 arrived in Melbourne. The British winning entrants took a whisker under 3 days, the last plane to arrive took some 4 months. This RHSV exhibition takes a close look at the entrants in the races (there were two races run concurrently – a speed race and a handicap race) including the Dutch entrant, the Uiver.
