I Can Fly!
May 5, 2016 8:50pm CST
We have been two years without an airline to meet the communities and businesses needs. I have just read the Local Council Newsletter and they are in negotiation with an airline and we should be right to go mid year. Oh dear, just realised that they did not stipulate which year. Oh well, we live in hope. The other options of traveling to major cities i.e, Sydney is by road or train.

@JudyEv I think I may have done one way back when. There has not been a flood since January 2012, the same time my father passed away. I haven't been here when a major food drop occurred, I think we were sent bread and milk one time and definitely mail. SES also called in to see if we needed any medications. A friend was airlifted for medical reasons one year and the next year my friend was flown to Sydney for an appointment with a Power of Attorney Tribunal. I used to travel through the flood waters in my little Holden Astra. Since I've had my all wheel drive, we haven't even had much rain.

Which part of Australia are you staying? Do you mean there's no airline to fly locally? I would definitely take a flight rather than train if I'd travel in Australia. I remember it took me 22 hours to go from a suburb near Sydney to Adelaide. After that, I just preferred to take a flight, as it's much faster and the flight tickets were not too expensive too. Hope you can fly soon!
