In Issue 35 (2018) of this magazine we ran a story about the history of powered flight over Antarctica (Opening up Antarctic skies pp 22–23). In the article we said that from 1929–1930 Douglas Mawson and expedition pilot Stuart Campbell mapped a large stretch of coastline from the Ross Sea to beyond Enderby Land. In fact it was Stuart Campbell and fellow RAAF pilot Eric Douglas. Thanks to Eric’s daughter Sally Douglas for correcting the record. Read more about Eric Douglas’s and Stuart Campbell’s Antarctic flights in Trove.
