Bombay, Cairo, San Francisco, Singapore, and Tel Aviv are just a few of the house calls that physician Barrie Davies made in his "flying" doctor's office. For 20 years, he traversed the corners of the globe to bring patients in need of medical care back to the United Kingdom. This alternately moving, compassionate, and comic memoir provides a candid and vivid account of his patients, destinations, job, and life. From delivering a premature baby 28 weeks early to caring for an 80-year-old woman and coping with sudden, in-flight medical emergencies, his career provides a lively picture of the burgeoning industry known as aeromedical repatriation.
