When baby Thomas james Ellis grows up, he will have a great story to tell his grandchildren about the day he was born.

On Tuesday 6 January 2004, Thomas was born several weeks early on a Flying Doctor aircraft as it landed at Tamworth Airport. Thomas 'parents, Genienne and James Eltis, live in the outback, A long way from any towns.

This is the third time the Flying Doctors have come to my aid. It's a wonderful organisation and I do not know what I would have done without them, 'Genienne said.

The Flying Doctor service started in 1928. It was the idea of ??Reverend John Flynn, a church minister who was working in the Australian outback. He had many stones to tell about how necessary an aerial medical service was, including one about Jimmy Darcy. Jimmy had a bad fall, and it took his friends twelve hours to take him thirty miles to the nearest town. The only person there who knew first aid was the Postmaster, and he performed a seven-hour operation without anaesthetic, following instructions in Morse codefrom his first aid teacher, who was 2,000 miles away. Unfortunately, Jimmy died ten days later.

In May 1928 Dr St Vincent Welch made the first official flying doctor visit. In the following year he saw 255 patients. He had no radio, and used a compass and landmarks like rivers and fences to find his way. Nowadays the Royal Flying Doctor Service has forty-six planes, attends about 500 patients each day and services an area of ??7,150,000 square kilometres. The service is available twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year. Modern technology is also available: the doctors have digital cameras and video conferencing facilities. However, a pilot might still need the help of ordinary people on the ground when he is landing the plane in the outback: sometimes he asks them to do a 'roo run', which means driving up and down the landing area to frighten off kangaroos and other wild animals!

People who have never been to Australia have often heard of the Flying Doctors. In the 1980s a TV series was made about them, and shown in fifty countries. Also, next time you have an Australian $ 20 note, look more closely - the Flying Doctors and their founder, John Flynn, are on one 'face' of the note.
