THE State Gov­ern­ment has given just $2.5mil­lion to the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice for a new air­craft.

For such an es­sen­tial ser­vice, the Gov­ern­ment should have pur­chased the air­craft out­right in­stead of putting mil­lions of dol­lars into an un­nec­es­sary ma­rina.

With­out the RFDS many sick peo­ple would not reach hos­pi­tal in time.

To Out­back re­mote ar­eas, the air med­i­cal ser­vice is a god­send – an ab­so­lute life­line.
