Thousands of Australians stranded OS.

We have a very capable Air Force & national carrier (w most of it’s fleet on the ground)

Why can’t we set up an operation to bring the most vulnerable home?

Convert detention centres to quarantine centres.

Why? Political will.
Would it be easy? No. Is it possible. Absolutely. Staged over the coming months.

We have brought stranded Australians home many times.

Not on this scale.

But why not?

Significant logistics, risk management, cost, et al.

A national rescue op worth seriously considering.
This of course would be a nationally led whole of government operation with critical support provided by the States and Territories.

Would require determination goodwill and national leadership.

Aircraft going ‘over’ could potentially take out stranded OS students from here
