Default Outback

Heard this on ABC radio a while back, but good to see the photos.

I have been on a couple of the flights operating in Queensland that make stops at outback communities.

I used to do mail runs in various aircraft types (C210, Baron, Chieftain, C402) back in my GA days around both the NT and North West QLD. The biggest was an 18 stop marathon out of Alice Springs. Enjoyable, with a variety of levels of airstrip complexity and preparedness.
