The story of the first ever plane flight into Nelson in 1921, by transport pioneer Tom Newman and his pilot, Shorty Fowler on 11 November 1921. This short historical play with a tinge of comedy pays tribute to the pioneering spirit of both men on the 100 year anniversary of the flight, and in almost the exact spot where the flight came down.

Written by Justin Eade, directed by Giles Burton, and performed by Peter Coates and Matthew Edgar.
