On this day......Nov 16

A pretty auspicious day today with the birth of an airline and an aircraft.

In 1920 all the necessary paperwork was completed at an hotel in Brisbane Australia to formally establish QANTAS or for those who don't know what these letters stand for. Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Services.

On a completely different continent 39 years later the first flight of the Canadair CL44 took place. A derivative of the Bristol 175 Britannia which had itself made its first flight in 1952.
