    Yes. But the risk for flights from small centres is very much less, even if simply because of the much smaller number of passengers. And this risk has to be balanced against the probability of losing the airline service altogether. For many of these towns it would also mean losing a lot of services supplied by FIFO medical specialists etc.

    Yes, it's a trade off. I expect rural residents would put a high priority on keeping a regular airline service and would regard the risk from terrorists as very low.

    I'm not sure they'd get away with that these days!
    I remember flying home to Winton in a DC3 when I was at boarding school. The aisle and under the seats were packed with mail bags, groceries, etc. This flight was a real milk run servicing several centres. Up and down like the David Jones lift.

    I was in the Solomons earlier this year in the back of a Twin Otter - I think anything smaller than a machete was ok if it was in carry on... Then, it started to rain - and we all got wet, even the crew!!

    Just make sure you pack the small toothpaste tube and not the big one or you may be suspected of being a terrorist.
