Publishers Description: Clear The Runway is the story of the vision and determination which bought a vital service to the country people of New South Wales. Life in the outback is hard and lonely; for the women and children especially so. To be ill or disabled, hundreds of kilometers from professional care, with roads sometimes impassable, is a possibility faced every day by country people. For these folk, an aeroplane can mean the difference between Life and death.This is the story of people who with great persistence, battled to lay the foundations of what became, in 1967, a fully fledged State-run air ambulance service. The story of the service is the story told in this book.
