It was Mr Fred Custance, he flew on Thursday the 17th of march while Harry Houdini, whom it is widely believed to be the first person to fly in Australia, waited for better weather. Harry flew on the 18th not knowing about Mr Fred Custance.

No, airplanes could not fly that far when he was alive. All his intercontinental travel was by ocean liner. However IIRC he was the first person to fly an airplane IN Australia.

Igor Sikorsky was the first person to fly in an airplane, in his 1913 airplane called "The Grand." The Wrights were the first people to fly an airplane, but you fly ON a Wright Flyer--it's very open. Sikorsky invented the enclosed cockpit.

The first person to fly a powered airplane in Europe was a Romanian called Trajan Vuia. In 1906, Trajan made an 11 meter flight.

.The first person to successfully fly a powered airplane was Orville Wright, on September 17, 1903. It only lasted 12 seconds, but that was long enough to prove that the Wright Brothers, Orviille and Wilbur, had succeeded in inventing the first successful airplane.

Harry Houdini is the first person to fly across Australia. He bought a French Voisin biplane for $5000 and flew with the aid of Antonio Brassac, a full-time Mechanic.

Harry Houdini became the first person to fly an airplane over Australia, he became the first person to escape from a straightjacket. And he also escaped the infamous 'mirror cuffs'- a pair of handcuffs a locksmith spent most of his carer prefecting.
