“Remembering Kingsford Smith”


An exhibition by the Horowhenua Philatelic Society - our local Stamp Club.

28th September 2018 marks the 90th Anniversary of the first crossing of the Tasman Sea by air, a significant event in New Zealand's history.

Charles Kingsford Smith piloted the plane, "Southern Cross," with 3 other crew from Sydney to Christchurch, a flight of nearly 14 ½ hours.

He went on to pioneer many other routes in his career and left a lasting legacy on both sides of the Tasman.

This display shows some of the stamps and covers that detail his achievements as well as other memorabilia associated with Kingsford-Smith.
