Missed flight to Melbourne (becoming a bit of a habit!). After crossing half the country on foot these last few days had to walk to board plane about 14 miles away from departure lounge! Around midnight I collapsed on my ankle; almost cried in pain, there was not a sole in sight to help. My arthritic pills have had no effect. Delays now putting clearances through Indochina and Malaya in jeopody ....must test fly fuel systems, transponder and radio. Darwin arrival date - Flight Q 0025 on 24th from Melbourne.
