Arthur Robertson was born in 1919 and became fascinated by Australia’s aviation pioneers after seeing the first commercial flight from Adelaide to Perth pass just 20 metres overhead on 2 June 1929. In later life, he used skills developed at Adelaide’s School of Fine Arts to create an incredible array of historical records on the epic flight for use by schools, museums and community groups. His artworks, scrap books and talks were all aimed at rekindling interest in South Australia’s aviation heritage. And by coincidence, Arthur’s wife Eileen was a second cousin to Wally Shiers. Arthur, we salute you!
