Suspended in mid-air, inches from hivoltage power lines, these deathdefying pilots have an incredibly tough job to do. From working on remote power line transmission towers and hovering just inches from the live wires, to dropping off farm workers into croc-infested swampland for crocodile egg collection. From providing 24-hour aeromedical emergency services to remote and regional residents, to bombing the bushfire flames with thousands of litres of water or foam from above, during Australia’s hot, dry summers. They are Australia’s Outback Pilots, men and women risking their lives through some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet. Out here only one thing matters, getting there and back alive!
