If you don't already know the story here it is below:
In 1942 Singapore fell to the Japanese, and with it, the vital air route that delivered top secret air mail and VIP's between Britain and Australia. Qantas decided to reconnect the route flying an almost impossible 32 hours non-stop between Perth and Ceylon in Catalina flying boats.
Overloaded with fuel and hunted by the enemy, these flights would break the air blockade of Australia and help win the war. The crews would see two sunrises on their flight, later calling them, The Double Sunrise Flights. In total, 271 crossings were been made across the Indian Ocean without any loss of life. A total of 858 passengers and 100 tonnes of mail had been flown for over 2 million kilometers. All across enemy territory, unarmed and without support. Feats still regarded today as some of the bravest in aviation history.
The film is Directed & Produced by Daniel Bunker
