“The Way It Was” book launch.
10 am Saturday 23 April at Central Craft. 
Chris Connellan was born in Alice Springs in 2948 and has lived around aeroplanes and the bush most of his life. This story centres around his experiences growing up in the Centre, and tells of the family’s history with Connellan Airways, including the one hundred years from the first plane landing at Stuart in 1921 until recent times.
The story emanates from ‘Araluen’, his family home near the original airport in Alice Springs where he spent many of his younger years. His childhood perspective on what was happening around him gives a revealing view of the pioneering nature of the people living in the outback and the challenges they faced. The Way It Was is a true story, told from his childhood perspective.
