As a child in North Carolina, Peter McMillan enjoyed building model planes and dreamt of epics in faraway lands. In later years, these daydreams took to the air as he became avidly involved in flying and restoring vintage aircraft from a base near San Francisco. For the England to Australia flight, Peter wrote first-person accounts in a cover story for National Geographic and in an illustrated book, The Greatest Flight that was published in the UK. Peter works at TPG, a global investment firm. He and his family currently live in London.
