Summary A look at the real life Flying Doctor Service, the air ambulance of outback Australia. It’s noble but hard work and the stories of the men and women who tend their patients, fly the planes and operate the radios, is a long way from their portrayal in the Australian television series, “The Flying Doctors”. The lives of the flight crew are extraordinary, two weeks on call and two weeks off, they maintain their spirit throughout. They confide in us about their unusual lifestyle which is so hard on their personal lives and relationships. For the nurses it’s a single woman’s occupation.
