Outback CareFlight Australia


Lousy weather so in the absence of local inspiration I’ve turned to reminiscing.
While at a gas station in the outback last year a CareFlight training module provided an interesting photo op.

CareFlight is an aero-medical charity established in May 1986. by a group of Australian doctors.
CareFlight uses a variety of aircraft including aero-medical helicopters, jets and aeroplanes to bring
injured and ill patients within Australia and overseas to emergency hospital care. https://careflight.org/

Location: Somewhere on the Stuart Highway between Alice Springs and Darwin.
So rest assured, if you have a serious accident or fall ill somewhere outback of nowhere in Oz you will be well looked after!

Mark, wouldn't it be quicker to actually fly the helicopters?

Of course, could be down to government cuts. Takes less fuel to use a truck!

Re: Outback CareFlight Australia

Having a transporter for an AI transformer is a rather neat solution for all long distance emergency medical problems.

Next step in the programmw would be to pack them up in a suitcase and placed in a convenience store near you.

That's all we need, a dying man in urgent need of life support and a bunch of bloody pommie comics! ! !
