The Screen Guide

The Flying Doctors are 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 successful Australian television series THE FLYING DOCTORS. The lives of the flight crew are extraordinary ... two weeks on and two weeks off ... six calls out per day per aircraft. But they still maintain their 'right stuff' attitude to their task, as though it poses no problem. They confide in us about their unusual lifestyle, which plays havoc with their personal lives and relationships ... for the nurses it is a single women's occupation. We follow the crew of our winged ambulance at work as they tend to cases in outback Queensland.
