Are there any airliners from Aus in Alice? Or are they all stored at boneyards in Arizona/California?

If Alice gets full should consider extending the runway at Yuendumu and Balgo.

Making money is easy when you can get the government to cover your growth costs

CX have bitten the bullet and accepted the recovery will be longer than most are prepared for. Some CX aircraft could be going to Toowoomba Wellcamp.
