Now retired, Colin shares his stories on what it was like working for Qantas as a Tug Driver, as he led aircraft to and from terminals and maintenance areas.

Father's Day Series EP 2: Steve & Bernadette Wallace

In today's Father's Day Series Podcast, we're chatting to Steve Wallace and his daughter Bernadette. The phrase 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree' couldn't be truer for this duo, with Steve nurturing his daughter's love for aviation from a very young age. Dinner time was never dull in the Wallace household. With Steve lining up cutlery to create runways and salt + pepper shakers to symbolise the aircraft, you can imagine his storytelling was quite a hit with the kids. Bernadette's earliest memory of aviation stems from her experience in the co-pilot seat, whilst her father worked alongside Mission Australia servicing Indigenous communities in Arnhem Land. Bringing passengers in for appointments and shopping trips and flying community members between homelands ensured that every day was different for Bernadette and her father. Now a Senior Base Pilot at the Royal Flying Doctor Service Brisbane Base, Steve's daily schedule still remains a surprise each day he clocks into work....

Flight Disruptions with Greg Shaw

Today on the show we have something a little different. Our guest is Greg Shaw from Flight Disruptions. As you would know, the aviation industry employs thousands of people and not all of them are pilots. When your bags are lost or your flight is cancelled then Greg and his team are the people that bring order to the chaos of getting you and a couple hundred other people along with their luggage to the hotel while you all wait for your next flight! This is a great Aussie business success story about a person from the industry that spotted a gap in the market and had a go at plugging it, and you know what, it worked!
