Australian Geographic - - Walk about -

THIS IS THE in­cred­i­ble true story of how the 2016 Aus­tralian Ge­o­graphic Ad­ven­turer of the Year re­cip­i­ent Michael Smith be­came the first per­son to cir­cum­nav­i­gate the globe in an am­phibi­ous plane. With lim­ited fly­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, no support team and only ba­sic in­stru­ments in his tiny sin­gle-en­gine fly­ing boat, South­ern Sun, Smith risked his life to make mod­ern avi­a­tion his­tory, re­trac­ing the 1938 Qan­tas, Im­pe­rial and Pan Am fly­ing boat routes be­tween Syd­ney, Southamp­ton and New York.
