Description

It's October 1934. The Great Centenary Air Race from London to Melbourne will be the biggest and most exciting the world has ever seen. Ten-year-old Jack longs to see the planes arrive and meet the aviators, but he lives in Albury, miles away from the action. He listens to the radio, thrilled that his father, the local ABC announcer, is calling the race. Then disaster strikes. The giant Dutch plane, the Uiver, is lost in a terrible thunderstorm over Albury. Jack's father must decide if he should break the ABC's rules and rally the town to rescue the plane. And Jack must leap into action...Now Loretta Re brings vividly to life this great true story, which won both Albury and Australia a lasting place in aviation history. Whether you love planes, or just dream of having an adventure like Jack's, whether you're young or just young at heart, you won't want to miss Stand Up and Cheer.
