Gallery 4 at the Hall of Fame is devoted to the history of the RFDS and displays of radio and medical equipment from across the years. It also shows how the Flying Doctor works in the 21st century, providing comprehensive, quality health care to people living, working and travelling in rural and remote areas.
A highlight of the visitor centre is the full-size cutaway representation of a Beechcraft King Air B200 with the medical equipment that turns it into a flying intensive care unit – visitors can have their photo taken in the pilot’s seat. The display includes a number of interactive and audiovisual features as well as sections on the Flying Doctor’s medical, aviation and communication history.
