Wish Flying Doctor was available in ebook form but unfortunately it isn't.

When I clicked on that link it took me to the page, then I went to where it says Continue shopping on the Kindle Store at Amazon.com.au which will take you to another page. Scroll down & the book is 6th from the top.

In fact I did my very first flight which was in a Lockeed Hudson VH-SMK a freighter of the Sydney Morning Herald Flying Services at Camden NSW in 1948. Captain Harry Purvis AFC was the pilot and it was a 30 minute test flight after an engine change. I was 16 then and sat on the freighter floor. No seats. No belts. Just hung on to the nearest protuberance. Incredibly noisy with no sound-proofing. Hence my interest in Cameron Hazlehurst book featuring Hudson facts

The book is an E-Version and free to download. See link

I could only find it in paperback.

I guess its unlikely to be reprinted. Seems like it should sit on the shelves for the next generation rather than in a Kindle. Such is life

Two by Jim Eames:

”The Searchers” which details the efforts by the RAAF to locate missing aircrew in the Southwest Pacific after WW2. “A thousand Australian airman remained unaccounted for at war’s end in 1945”.

”Courage in the Skies: The untold story of Qantas, it’s brave men and women and their extraordinary role in World War II”.
