The flying priest

It's not every day you see a priest tinkering his way around an aeroplane, but that has been a regular sight for the last couple of years at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Thurgoona in southern NSW. A light aircraft has been built by Fr John Fowles who hopes to soon fly it around Australia to raise money for those less fortunate in East Timor.
