    This is a scale model aircraft which is a tribute to Australia’s Royal Flying Doctor Service. The Victory is a single engined bi-plane which made its first RFDS flight in 1928. The first flight to Lake Grace was made in 1974.

    The Royal Flying Doctors Service was founded by the Reverend John Flynn. The service now covers more than 80% of Australia. 45 aircraft fly from around 23 bases which makes no one more than 90 minutes from medical help.
