Member for MacKenzie Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King along with Mayor Invisible and our tourism leaders have all told us these flights are the "saviour" of Cairns.
Sad that none of our "leaders" have done anything to spruce up the first view of Cairns that will shock and depress our Chinese friends. An abandoned run-down petrol station isn't the view I want any of our visitors taking home. But at least it will explain the run down CBD and dozens of empty, boarded-up shops.
Especially when compared to the view that greets arrivals to THEIR airport.
