'Embarrassing': Action after rumour pilot slept under plane
SOME say rumours are just rumours and are usually good for nothing.
But a particular rumour that somehow wiggled its way into the Gladstone Regional Council chambers ruffled some feathers with councillors, who upon hearing it, immediately called for action to get a new facility at the airport off the ground.
The rumour, mentioned at the council's meeting on Tuesday, was that a passer-by at the Gladstone Airport saw the pilot of a Royal Flying Doctor Service aircraft sleeping under his plane.
A quick rest in the shade before his next job.
While it's unknown whether this is true, it sparked action from councillor Kahn Goodluck, who said during the meeting that if it was true, it was "embarrassing" that the pilot had no other option.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service Queensland were contacted, however as of 4pm The Observer had not received a response.
