I think most if not all the C172's as well as the Diamonds are already at Mildura in the old Qantas maintenance hangar. The hard part is getting instructors & LAME's.

I don't think that either of the Angel Flight accidents support the premise that either "get there itis" or " pilots egos" were involved.

In the first of the 2 accidents, the pilot landed at...
