Episode notes

It took Ross and Kevin Smith 28 days to complete their historic UK-Australia flight in 1919.

From then, Australian aviation has come a long away – we now see unmanned aircraft in the sky and some of the most advanced jets in the world flying at speeds of almost 2,000 km per hour.    Today, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) is world class Air Force with a proud 100 year history and a very inspiring future that will see a growing fleet of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter - one of the most advanced aircraft in the world. 

Join Lily Serna as she takes a look at the evolution of Australian military aviation and meets the people and technologies driving this vibrant industry. Technically Possible travels back in time to that historic Smith Brothers flight and looks at the future technologies taking our next-generation sky high.
