Managed to get through security without anything beeping.

Once word had got around amongst the REX staff, that we were the intrepid travellers that had come up the day before, a copy of the book REX The First 10 Years was presented as as a gift.

A few aircraft seen while waiting.

Another REX flight off to Townsville that makes stops at Richmond, Julia Creek, Hughenden and Townsville.

Virgin Australia ERJ-190 yaking the faster, less exciting route to Brisbane.

Boarding was called and since dad and I are the only two passengers on the first leg to Boulia, boarding was quickly done.
A lengthy walk across the tarmac and again no one has a go at me for taking a couple of photos.

Aircraft was getting a bit warm inside until the air conditioning got going.
Water was handed out before take off.
Took off to the south and fairly smooth take off and climb.
Snacks were offered. Had the savoury snack.

Flight time about 35 minutes.

Boulia to Bedourie

While on the ground at these transit stops, the flight attendant puts the window shades on the sun side of the aircraft down in an effort to try and keep the cabin a bit cooler.
One passenger joined us here.

Out here you are better off owning something like this as distances between places are huge.

RE: The Outback Scenic Route To Brisbane REX Saab 340

Fri Dec 04, 2015 11:35 am

Part 12
Birdsville to Windorah

Took off for Windorah, a bit choppy in places.
Originally we were going to bypass Windorah as there were no passengers or freight to pick up, but it was realized during the earlier stages of the flight that fuel would be needed before we got to Charleville.

Flight time to Windorah was about 50 minutes. Sweet or savoury snacks were again offered with water. Not much of a sweet tooth so it's the savoury snack every time. Tea or coffee was also offered on this leg.

Stop in Windorah was for refueling and some last minute freight was also loaded. This flight is the only way to get time critical freight like blood samples etc to either Brisbane or Mount Isa. A route like this would not be profitable so is Government subsidised.

The hose going into the hold is connected to an airconditioner cart that pumps cool air into the cabin during extended stops like this one. Remember this is the hot arid outback where the summers are ferociously hot.

Since Windorah isn't on the main electricity grid, the hardy few people who live here have to rely on a solar power station, as well as a back up diesel generator.

Since we had arrived from airports without x ray and metal detectors we had to go through a network of passageways that kept us separate from other passengers until the baggage reclaim area.

The adventure is over.
No problems with REX and when the aircraft broke down in Charleville the day before, no one seemed too worried about it.People behave differently out in the bush versus at a big crowded airport.

To me this flight seemed to be a good way to get to see some of the outback, without the hassle of driving around in a 4WD etc.

RE: The Outback Scenic Route To Brisbane REX Saab 340

Hi Ryan,

I'd half expected to see the journey continue up to Burketown and Normanton...

That's great that the staff in Mt Isa gave you a history of the airline as a gift.

A journey like this really lets one appreciate how isolated some of the outback communities are. The changing landscapes and cloud formations came out well in your photos. Thanks too for including other light aircraft along the way.

Regards,
Weary
