The second aeroplane flight in Queensland took place at Callaghan Park racecourse in Rockhampton, where the Bleriot aeroplane raced a motor car. American aviator, Arthur Burr 'Wizard' Stone, was matched to race S. Taylor in the motor car. The plane eventually gained the length of the course on the car, but was badly damaged when landing.
