Avro Avian, G-EBOV

The Avro Avian, G-EBOV was the plane used by Bert Hinkler to fly the first solo flight in 1928 between England and Australia. He departed England and arrived in Darwin reducing the England-Australia record from 28 days to just under 15½ days. The Avro Avian was a series of British light aircraft designed and built by Avro in the 1920s and 1930s.
