In 1928, Charles Kingsford Smith and his co-pilot Charles Ulm arrived in the United States and purchased a Fokker F.VII/3m monoplane, which they named the Southern Cross, from Australian polar explorer Sir Hubert Wilkins. In the same year they made the first trans-Pacific flight from the United States to Australia. This event was one of a series of aviation images by Frank Lemon, commissioned by the Wright Aeronautical Corporation of Paterson, New Jersey (1919-1929), which was originally established by the Wright brothers.
