Our flight left at 7:55am from Brisbane airport and took us on the mail plane to Toowoomba where we landed at the new airport at Wellcamp. Brisbane West Wellcamp is its official name. Charleville was our next stop and then on to Quilpie and then Windorah for lunch. As we were on a smallish plane(30 Passengers) there was no lunch provided. In typical Aussie fashion however we could get a meat pie from the fridge in the terminal, put it in the microwave and heat it for ourselves and even get tomato sauce from the fridge to enhance our Mrs Mac's pie. To pay for it there was a tin attached to the wall for our money. As you can tell from this there is no one in the terminal permanently. They direct the plane on landing, unload the cargo and luggage and then return to their other jobs.

More of that later.
