Wings to the World is the third book of the Huson Fysh Triology and concluding volume in this Qantas history. Though Sir Hudson Fysh is part relating his own autobiography and is essentially concerned with the story of the great Australian Airline of which he was one of the founders, the three volumes together virtually amount to a history of one of the most exciting and important series of events in modern times-the development of international air transport.
This final volume is based on the story of Qantas and Qantas Empire Airways between 1945 and 1966. Along with the lighter entertainment provided by pioneering adventures in New Guinea and the stowaways, smugglers and even more desperate doings and intricate negotiations between the Australian and British Governments over the choice of Constellation aircrafts; the taking over of Qantas by the Government; the coming of jet aircraft; and the extension of QEA’s services all over the world. It is an absorbing story of high politics, high finances and high flying.
