This book is a brief account of that remarkable airline.
Failure of Triumph
Failure of Triumph is a story with several main themes. As the subtitle suggests it is EJ Connellan's story of the airline that he founded and it provides a unique perspective on 50 years of Australian aviation. But it is far more than that. It also provides an insight into 50 years of the Northern Territoty history. As the principal of the Territory's airline, a Central Australian pastoralist and businessman, EJ Connellan was associated with many of the key people and developments in the Territory's later history.
