An overcast Friday afternoon in January; the helipad of a little island in the South China Sea. A Government Flying Service helicopter comes in to medivac a patient from the local cottage hospital to a major public hospital in town.

The aircrew, which usually includes a Flying Nurse or Flying Doctor, wear very cool uniforms and those Top Gun helmets. Whirlybirds are go!

Anyway, whoever they collected didn't need a saline drip or oxygen, just the usual stretcher, blanket, rubber cover, and noise reduction ear muffs.

Whoever . . . we hope you Get Well Soon!
