Long Description:
"To the memory of
the Australian Aviators
Sir Charles Kingsford-Smith
and
Captain Charles T. P. Ulm
This plaque is dedicated by the Board of Port Commissioners of the City of Oakland as a permanent tribute to the courage and foresight of these gallant airmen.
Their aeronautical exploits – starting in 1928 with the pioneering flight of the Southern Cross from Oakland to Australia and thence continued around the globe by Kingsford-Smith to complete at Oakland the aerial circumnavigation of the world – contributed greatly to the progress of aviation and demonstrated the practicability of regular transoceanic air service."
