First aeroplane in Marrabel
In 1919 the first aeroplane landed somewhere in a paddock near the little town of Marrabel, South Australia. Found the photo today as I was sorting material at the local historical centre in Riverton. I get a distinct feeling of Sopwith…does anyone know for sure what make this contraption is? For some reason I assume it is a two seater as a single seater would have less appeal for transport or joy rides. Think I have read about this flight somewhere… Love the crowd, all in awe of the high technological machine that just landed in their town.
