Australia is mostly a big empty bowl of dust, and the few people that live in its vast interior are a long long way from everything. If you fall ill or get injured in the outback you’re in for quite a wait to get medical assistance. Which is where the Royal Flying Doctor Service comes in, saving lives from the skies. Using planes such as this GAF N22C Nomad short landing and take-off aircraft, the flying doctors can get to those in need in a matter of hours. Previous bloggee Henrik Jensen has recreated the twin-engine Nomad superbly, and you can see more at his Flickr photostream by clicking here.
