Several decades ago, Reg and I followed Burke and Will's route through inland Australia with a tour guide and thirty two other adventurers. We all set out fit. The arduous conditions took their tole and the Royal Flying Doctor was called in three times to airlift one of our fellow travelers to a hospital for treatment. I became aware how necessary their service is and how frequently they are called on to assist.
Once I became ill in Winton, Queensland, and the Royal Flying Doctor was about to be called to transport me to Mount Isa for an appendectomy. However me being the know-it-all, I've a tendency to be at times, I signed myself out of hospital and drove to Alice Springs, saw a doctor there and confirmed, it was not appendicitis and the condition settled down of its own accord. Okay, so that worked out well for me. However, if I'd really needed them the Royal Flying Doctor might have saved my live. They save many lives. We need to support them.
Join the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia at their stand at the Avalon Airshow west of Melbourne - Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd of March.
As well as doing health checks with volunteer medical students they will also have their aeromedical simulator there - which is a replica of a flying doctor's aircraft fuselage. Go along and support this essential Australian service.
Their stand is sure to be great fun with a replica Flying Doctor aircraft and free health checks. http://bit.ly/15LkmzP
