Solo Around The World By Helicopter – stage three 1982/3

The third and final stage of Dick Smith’s solo helicopter flight around the world, from Sydney Australia to Fort Worth in America.

This video features Dick flying around Carstensz Pyramid – the highest mountain in Australasia, and arriving in Hong Kong.

Also included is Dick’s ship-board landing to refuel between Japan and Alaska, due the Soviet Union not allowing him to land.

At the end of the video Dick makes amateur radio contact from Fort Worth back to Australia, shortly before landing and completing his flight.
