    Hi Kathy,
    Yes, but Flying Doctors are really more than that. They run clinics in remote parts of Australia and in some cases help with deliveries of small bits and pieces. They are providing a vital service to remote areas.

  10. We've had two posts about the helpful pilots and planes in Australia. What a great service they provide.

    Wow, I know these kinds of services existed, but I do think this is a new one to me. Now a days they use helicopter to transport people to hospitals and etc.

  12. I wonder if the flying doctor show that Bob mentioned is the same one we had in the US. I'd forgotten about it.

    These days we often have the emergency helicopter fly over the house on its way to the hospital.

    I love the look on the kids face in this shot.
